    Honestly, you can go down the potato road, I usually find if I take down a half gallon of ice cream, I bust through sticking points!!!! It does sound like you need to up your carbs. I have horrible results adding weight to the bar when I am low carbing it.

    Despite what its founder might advertise, CrossFit is not a strength training program. It is simply too random and unstructured to drive continuous strength adaptation. The reason why many see strength gains when they start CrossFit is due to the Novice Effect (see here). The first thing I would do, if your concern is strength, is to actually switch to a strength program. Once you do that, then we can talk about why you're not gaining strength.

    This is both simple and brilliant advice.

    Agreed! Plus eat more. Add more food, see if you start gaining fat. If not eat more and so on. Once you start getting a little thicker around the middle drop your calories back just a little and work your ass off in the gym.
