Many people ratchet up the fat content of their diet to cover calories while keeping to Zone protein/carb recomendations. Some go as high as 50/60% fat at a maintaince level. For most they gain muscle doing CF WOD's. A few people come to the game with A BUNCH of muscle and may loose a little as they adapt to the workload (relative strength tends to increase...absolute strength may suffer a bit).

You look like a BIG dude so you may fall into that later category. If you want to post a few days of food logs we will have a better understanding of where you are at.

Many people worry they will look like a marathon runner after doing CF! You won't be a bean-pole from this stuff. You obviously have a system that works. Tweaking the fat content and a few things like that will produce the results you want IMO.

I was a little worried I would drop weight, but it hasn't happened yet. As long as your calories support your activity level, you'll be fine.

Question on adding fat blocks: when you write for example x3 fat blocks does that mean you are multiplying current fat blocks by 3? So for a 5 block meal, you will eat 15 fat blocks?
