I'm not an expert, but perhaps you're eating a bit too much protein? I'd make sure most of your plate is filled with veggies and just one serving (palm size) of protein.

It is okay to just follow your appetite, for a while anyway. The key issue is whether or not you start to feel run down with no energy. If you start reading questions about hypothyroidism and begin to think it may describe you, then you probably... (more)

It's 3 pounds. THREE pounds! It could be water. Obsessing over three pounds is not good for you, nor is it conducive to healthy eating. Maybe your scale is three pounds off. And you wouldn't gain that over night.

The average weight loss is a useless number in this situation since everyone is different. You should expect your weight to eventually get to your optimal weight, and stay there provided you stay paleo. The number isn't really important.
