My ratios, however, are somewhere between the base zone and the athletes zone. Anyone who has tried knows that is is very hard to get the zone required amount of carbs the base zone allows without permitting a few non-paleo carbs and even harder still if you have to eat on the go alot. You would have to carry grocery bags to work every day of you just used low glycemic veggies as your only carb source. With that said, I use a good amount of raisins,carrots, and bananas, etc. in my zone friendly meals that I pack so I get my ratios right. I also eat a few zone bars. So I guess I am 80-90% paleo or "paleo type". If you were closer to the athletes zone where you're adding the fat blocks, the volume of food is probably not as much.

What's this have to do with adding gelatin? Sometimes I think you have to go outside of the strict paleo parameters (the friendly confines). I say, have your gelatin or jello. Just be sure that most of the time you are paleo. I mean, if you go to KFC and get the bucket with all the fixin's, you know you are not eatin paleo.
I agree completely. I occasionly throw some dressing or condiments on my veggies that isn't paleo canon. But hey, it gets it down and works, so there you go.

You could try using agar agar (a sea vegetable) in place of gelatin. It does much the same thing gelatin does and gives you the benefits of sea veggies.

Where does one purchase agar agar? I searched online (as I have never heard of agar agar) and there are a few suppliers that offer the sea veggie. Is this something that Wild Oats/Whole Foods sells? Thanks!!!!!
