Default How many blocks?

It really helps my thinking if I can quantify how many Zone blocks it takes to put on fairly lean mass. Up until now i have followed a fairly paleo diet with no real portioning controls, I have just been trying to eat as much as I can between 4pm and 10pm. It feels like I am stuffing myself (several pounds of vegetables, 4 whole fruits, whole bag of cashews, lots of lean meat and protein powder and aminos post workout) but can't tell if it is enough. I seem to be putting on some lean mass, but would like to get more precise to make sure I am getting enough clean calories.

I am about 165lbs, 21yo, male. I am a trainer at Rogue Fitness, so I am very active all day long and workout 5-6 days per week. I figure 21 blocks at 3x fat seems right. Thats about 150g PRO and about 3,050 calories. As I put on mass, that will have to go up. Is this enough?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
