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.
