Hello! I am female 23, been paleo for about a year. Everything has been great, happy with the way I look and my weight. Only about 2 weeks ago I started having intense chocolate craving, not those that-time-of-the-month usual cravings but I mean thinking about it 24/7,dreaming about it. So yesterday when I woke up I thought enough was enough and had my finace's leftover chocolate bar and suddenly felt great. Well as it happens I only wanted chocolate so had only chocolate all day yesterday, and some coffee, but that's all I ate. Didn't limit myself and ate as much of chocolate as I wanted. I felt really good, went to sleep satisfied and had a great sleep. I probably ate around 600grams worth of chocolate,could be more, but this morning I weighed myself and I had lost 2 pounds! I expected a bit of gain but not loss!
I'm just a bit confused as to why I lost weight? Any insight? I ate any kind of chocolate I wanted didn't limit myself to just dark chocolate.

my weight can fluctuate up to 5 lbs in one day. it's not surprising if you had such a small amount of food. meat/veggies/fruits weigh more than a few bars of chocolate.

It may have just been water loss or waste. Chocolate and coffee are diuretics and stool softeners.

I would guess one of two things--or both: 1) PMS. 2) Magnesium deficiency.
Try increasing your magnesium intake and meanwhile see if the PMS theory plays out.
