I'm aiming to gain a decent amount of lean mass over the next 6 months. I haven't had a lot of luck with this because I'm very much the lean and skinny weakling build, but also because I deal with fatigue a few times a year that throws a wrench in the Crossfit/HIIT approach I've been trying. The last two times I tried a regular HIIT workout, I had fatigue flareups within 2 months that destroyed my progress.
One complication is that I usually go LC/VLC except for post-workout to manage my fatigue.
Any ideas or suggestions?

Have a look at Bryan Haycock's 'Hypertrophy-Specific Training.' I suggest this because of the regular Strategic Deconditioning: "reset"/layoff periods. The whole system is cyclic and slowly builds up conditioning and then backs off. It's not specifically paleo but their free manual is fully open to low carb and ketogenic renditions of their recommended diet.
