Default Belly Fat and Metabolism

I am in the army and completed Ranger school a little over a year ago. Prior to Ranger I never weighed more than 155# and always had single digit bodyfat. During the course I lost probably close to 20# but within a few weeks of graduating I had put it all back on plus about 15# (metabolism slowed down quite a bit). Now a year later I have been able to get back in shape just fine with a fitness regime based around metabolic conditioning, however, my body composition seems like it will never be what it used to be. I eat 90% paleo and only around 2200-2500 calories a day (im 25yrs old, 69" tall). The majority of the fat seems to be around my lower abdomen. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, how can I get rid of this extra weight?
