Track your calories. 2000-2500 is a good range. Sleep is most important. You have to get your Z's. Cut out sugar and carbs for the first month along with some exercise. You are on the right track, it just takes time.

I know when I switched to Paleo I felt hungry all the time too. Since fat has more than double the calorie density of protein or carbs you aren't filling your stomach with as much volume. For me it just took a while to adjust.
