The best diet is run ten miles a day and eat as much as you wish.

Cholesterol is only found in animals, not plants, so there is none in coconut. And dietary cholesterol does not raise cholesterol in the blood. Dietary cholesterol is actually very good to consume, especially for hormone function.

Just starting Paleo. How many times a day do you typically eat? I am used to eating 6 times a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks. I am not sure about eating high fat 6 times a day. Help please!

Eat when you are hungry. Eat as much as you want. I used to eat the way you describe. Measuring and counting. LOL Now, I eat twice a day, as much as I want. Your body will adjust when you get off the carb merry-go-round.

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.

While the basic concept about Paleo says you must have meat/eggs, veggies and fat in each meal, I found a few paleo blogs/sites having some breakfast recipes without any meat/egg. Is that paleo enough?

Eat whatever works for you. There is no rule that your breakfast must contain meat or eggs.
