So how do I structure this?
Some say 1lb a week, some say 1lb a month.
I'll need a gaol in mind or I won't know where I stand.

1lb a week = 16lb in 4 months. If it were a ratio of 1:1, I'd have roughly 8lb fat gain, 8lb muscle

1lb a month = 4 pounds in 4 months. 2 pounds of fat. 2 of muscle.

Confusing.
I think this is for once something important I'm worrying about.
I need to figure this out to know how much to eat.

at 125 pounds, I'm skinny I know.
Healthy weight for a 16 year old at 5ft10 is around 135, to 145 pounds think.
So in theory, even if I did gain 16 pounds, at 1lb a week, I shouldn't look fat?
