I think it depends on you definition of "paleo", but you can definitely make gluten-free gravy. Some sort of starch is inevitable because the cooked starch is what gelatinizes and thickens the stock. This post on glutenfreegirl.com features a... (more)

sounds like you are eating very few carbs. The "stubborn belly" could be from a ton of things -- one of which is too much cortisol build-up. You may want to consider implementing more rest days to help your body heal.

I'm a woman and lost 25 lbs of normal weight, plus another 25/30 of baby weight, doing paleo/primal in my late 30s. I can't comment on ratios, because I've never tracked. But, I can say that women, too, can lose weight eating this way.

8 or more alcoholic drinks a week will hamper your weight loss. Trust me I live in Beervana and I had a heck of time cutting beer out. Once I did I feel better and the weight loss is about 3 lbs a week.

Losing 13 pounds in 4 weeks (>3 pounds per week) is well over normal weight loss. Sounds like you have some very unrealistic expectations for weight loss. Aim for 1 pound per week, you're already 9 weeks ahead of where you should be.
