Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.

IMO, too much canned food. High sodium retains water. I agree also , you may be overtraining and not giving your body time to heal and it's considering itself injured and holding all calories.

The fundamental thought of HIIT is that you practice in short blasts of extraordinary movement for up to 60 seconds on end (or as meager as 10 seconds). In the middle of blasts your movement level ought to be simple or moderate. The principles... (more)

Unless you're aiming for ketosis, I see no harm in adding some extra carbs for your PWO-meal. If I'm correct, a little insulin-spike could help with recovery and growth - unless you're solely looking to burn as much fat as possible.
