Working out fasted is indeed your best bet.  You could also look at doing some CT as well.  Ideal would be to work out fasted while wearing an ice vest as this forces you to burn a lot of fuel quicker.   You could also skip the... (more)

Eat a giant sweet potato bathed in butter... Seriously though eat some carbs!!! HF/LC can cause high levels of cortisol. Paleo is not low carb.

Eating healthy is the key to lose weight. Your work will cover the required exercise. If you still feel a morning brisk walk or running would help.

I cannot believe one can eat too much pumpkin. There are paleo populations who eat 60% calories in sweet potatoes, nutritionally very similar to pumpkin, and they have no diseases of civilization. I think you are doing very well.
