Diet changes and weight loss can throw off the length of your cycle as well as cause you to skip your period altogether.  Losing 10 pounds in 3 weeks sounds unhealthy unless you are very heavy to start with- that could be stressing your body.

When I started training for a marathon, my period cycles got longer, and now i am at 31 day cycles instead of 28.  When I was doing intense bikram yoga multiple times a week in addition to that, i was at 35.  I think as long as your body fat is normal and you are taking in a healthy amount of fats and calories you should be okay. Paleo itself won’t make you lose your period,but drastic weight loss or being underweight can.  Its only a few days late…maybe its just taking longer this time.
