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.

I find that whenever I need organ meats most in my diet (ie. period, intense training) I find them the least palatable, and instead want really palatable foods like fruits, nuts, chocolate, starchy vegetables, and fermented dairy?

Make sure you're eating ENOUGH calories. It sounds like you're eating too far below your TDEE, which is preventing loss.
