Kevin, how active are you? Using the template in Crossfit Journal May 04, you look to be 17 blocks.

There are others that have far more experience on the board with the Zone, so if they say something different, go with their advice.

With that amount of exercise, I'm surprised you're not losing weight. What's missing from your post is your body composition. If you're less than 10% BF, then it's a different calculation of blocks than if you're 20% BF: fat doesn't burn calories, muscles do, so your basal metabolic rate would differ considerably.

You may also not be conscious of what you're eating. Chris Forbis turned me on to www.fitday.com, a free site, that helps keep exact track of your calories in and out.

Tables in the back of Enter the Zone will give you a decent calc on what your %BF is. Your waist size minus your wrist size (measured at specific points) equal a constant listed in the tables. I'm the exact height you are and weigh 194. My %BF is approx %19. My weight is staying constant while I can tell my %LBM is going up but by how so far I don't know. How long you been working out at CF seriously?
