I agree with this comment as well.

I noticed that when I got very intensely into the diet and training as you sound you currently are Berra, that essentially metabolism slows down and fat loss easily plateaus.
The only thing that got the fat loss moving again, was for a short period of time eg 1 week, I would reduce the training demand and very slowly increase my carb consumption to allow a short period of recovery. Even on modest amounts of additional carbs, the body response is remarkable ie more strength and energy and a few niggles just seem to go away.
Then when the recovery period is over, hit the diet and training hard and with your renewed energy - you will be surprised at the sudden progress. I appreciate this sounds counter intuitive, but if you think about your diet and training as if it was a muscle, when you work it too hard it becomes damaged so you back off to allow recovery and then go on to use it again when it has recovered.
Its just the same approach with overall diet and training and in my personal experience, it has worked for me.
