Hi everyone, I have been on Paleo for nearly a month, since my initial weight loss of 10lb. I was at 345lb, now sitting between 333-335lb, weight fluctuates daily. I have been having difficulty losing additional weight. My diet is consist of mostly omelet, bacon, chili (no beans), chicken, no-carb sausages, and variety of veggies. I keep my net-carb <50g, I train 3-4 times a week in strength training, lifting heavy 4-8 reps x 4 sets, and on my non-lifting days perform light cardio, about 2-3 times per week for 30 min sessions. I supplement with omega-3, multi's, and glucosamine.
I am not sure if my body is recomping; therefore, the adjustment period, but it would be nice if it would start shedding some fat.

So I've basically followed everyone's advice in this thread, cut my carbs down to less than <20g of carb per day, I've continued to exercise on a regular basis, and have also tried a week of not exercising at all, yet I still can't figure out why I am still stalling.
I am currently at 329lb, dropped 4 lb since I started this post, but I've stalled again for 2 weeks now. Most of my diet is very natural with little processed foods, except with the occasional Coke Zero. I've replaced the processed bacon with unprocessed pork belly. I get plenty of rest, but I don't understand why I haven't been dropping any weight at all.
TYPICAL DAILY MEAL:
Breakfast - Coffee/Tea (a tsp or 2 of Heavy Cream), 3 Eggs, 2 slices of pork belly
Lunch/PreWorkout - A small bowl of taco beef (ground beef, taco seasoning, with a little bit of salsa), slice of melted jack or cheddar cheese on top (used to be on Keto, so I eat a bit of cheese here and there).
Dinner/PostWorkout - a small bowl of slow cooked pork shoulder (basically cooked in smoked sea salt and liquid smoke).
Snack - Almonds or Coke Zero (cutting that out), or Coffee or repeat Breakfast.
I drink at least a cup of Coffee or Tea per day, drink lots of water.
Thanks for everyone's help so far.
