Hey KM, relax! Weight loss does not follow a steady straight line. If you could survive 30 days of paleo, try to imagine what you'll look like in 180 days. (Hint: skinnier) Note that water weight fluctuations can be substantial. Also, if you... (more)

It's not just ketosis, but also sugar & salt withdrawal combined with fluid re-regulation. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting adequate minerals in your diet.

I highly suggest buying a scale... I bought one pretty cheap at Target... it makes measuring a whole lot easier, and over time you'll get good at eyeballing how many grams are in a serving.

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.
