@Bearso, this looks to me precisely like the Starting Strength program.  No offense. 

@stuward, thanks for your advice.  I'm probably not going to return to dedicated heavy lifting in the near future, since I'm concentrating more effort on the Gymnastic Bodies program.  However, adding in a metabolic cycle along the lines of what you suggested sounds good.  I'm tempted to add squats back in as well, I miss them, just not sure if that would be too much.

Hi, everyone.  I'm looking for some advice on fat loss.
I'm currently 5'10" and 178lbs, with too much of that being fat  :(

Background:  I started Starting Strength protocol over a year ago, hit a plateau and reset twice.
I'm currently doing a low-level Gymnastic Bodies program with prehab and mobility exercises, to establish a sounder musculoskeletal basis for building strength.
I haven't run for nearly 2 years due to shin splints, currently trying to rehab.
Work out 3-4 days a week, not much other exercise except walking the dog.

Diet: For the last year and a half, mostly paleo - grassfed beef, eggs, raw greens, raw fish, small amounts of rice or potatoes; restricted sugars to a small serving of fruit or dark chocolate once a day.  No dairy at all; unsweetened coconut milk.  2-3 glasses of wine a night.

I didn't lose an ounce of weight during the time I was doing Starting Strength, although I see many people saying that heavy lifting is the most efficient exercise for fat loss.

I am considering adding tabata (rows or maybe sprint on soft sand) to my workouts.

Any thoughts, considering my diet/exercise, on what more I could be doing?
