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.

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

Have you ever thought of not measuring your post-workout carbs? Just eat the amount of carbs that helps you feel good. It will take some trial and error, but I've had good results reducing bodyfat doing this. No need to measure anything.

IF the goal is fat loss... meal timing is completely irrelevant and makes no difference between eating 1 meal a day or 10 meals a day or fasting 6 hours a day or fasting 20 hours a day... Makes NO difference in body composition.
