If you've been eating Paleo and feel like your progress has stalled, portion control is the next step. Barry Sears's Zone Diet, far from being any radical crash diet, recommends a 30% protein, 40% carbohydrate, 30% fat balance of macronutrients, with the amount of food determined by one's build and activity level. Here is a great introduction to the Zone Diet:

The Zone Diet has always been Greg Glassman's prescription of choice for his clients. In recent years fashion has moved away from the Zone toward a preoccupation with food quality (Paleo), but I think for many people, portion control is the missing link to achieving their body recomp goals.
