Dump the mountain dew, replace it with milk.

Get rid of the toaster strudel, the honey oats bars, and the miniwheats. Double your portions of everything else.

Stop running 12-15 miles a week as well.

What Katherine said (sans the milk if you have serious issues with dairy). And your training volume is WAY too high for serious muscle gain. CrossFit mainsite + strength training + long distance running is not going to get you what you want. Ditch all of the running, limit the long metcons, and lift heavy. Perhaps CrossFit Football.

Oh how I wish Mountain Dew was considered healthy. I used to live on that stuff.

Anyway, when you say ham/turkey sandwich for lunch and chicken/steak for dinner, how much meat for each? I'd personally shoot for 1 lb for lunch and 1-2 lb for dinner.

eat more. eat everything you can. just eat. as active as you are you aren't going to get fat overnight. try to cut back on the training. if you can run less then do it. if you have to run, then cut back crossfit metcons and focus on heavy strength.

lift big, eat big, rest big... it's really that simple.

As said before, ditch the mountain dew for milk. Drink more milk. Eat more Start lifting heavy before you do a WOD, stop running.

Or just follow a program such as CFFB/70s big and eat everything in sight.
