It may help you to construct a Paleo Pyramid in your mind:

The base level is vegetables, dotted with berries and melons.
Then comes fish, fowl, or meat.
Then nuts and needs, olives, avocados, good oils, nut butters, etc.

This is my usual diet, along with up to a half-cup of oatmeal, brown rice, barley, or quinoa a day, plus lowfat cottage cheese. (These are my personal 'tweaks'.)

I find I don't need to track if my weight is where I want it and my fitness is good. I track as needed to take off a few pounds now and then, which I'm doing now.

I eat up to 50% of my total calories as fat!

My typical breakfast consists of eggs, usually w/ leftover veggies, a piece of fruit, some nuts.
My typical lunch is a large salad w/ leftover meat, fish or chicken, or canned salmon, olive oil and avocado in the salad.
My typical dinner is a stir-fry, stew or soup, or a plate of veggies with a chop or fillet, and a salad. Again, added nuts and oils as needed for fat content.

It's a mood-lifter and energy-giver to eat this way. I honestly would suggest getting the quality of the diet right first, then worry about tracking on fitday.
