Re: Converting from Zone to Paleo/Zone, need help

I think many Paleo people naturally start slipping out of the Zone for that reason. Instead of trying to meet the carb requirement, they use more fat blocks. It's a lot easier to carry around walnuts than eight cups of spinach! You can also try using more fruits--most are of a higher glycemic index than many vegetables, but you say you're a hard gainer so you probably don't have to worry too much about stimulating fat gain anyway.
