Carb cycling is probably a good idea unless you're trying to keto-adapt. Alas, pizza and Chinese are more omega-6 fat bombs than they are carb bombs...even potatoes tend to turn into fat bombs once you actually cook them up (mashed potatoes, home... (more)

I'm not an expert, but perhaps you're eating a bit too much protein? I'd make sure most of your plate is filled with veggies and just one serving (palm size) of protein.

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.
