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)

It is been my personal experience that sprinting is better than burpees. To this day nothing jacks my heart rate like an all out, 100% 400m sprint. Also if you do sprints on a regular basis you may actually gain something from it, speed.

I doubt its that great for your joints to be close to dislocated everyday. I would take a few days of each week to recover. You also need days just to train weights. 3-4 days a week might be nicer on your body for long term health.
