In short - you dont need to bulk or cut, and you can gain muscle while gaining only minimal fat. Just be aware it takes a lot of time (read years).
gain 3 pounds of muscle in a year?!
They'd look no different!
I'd rather gain the fat that that, and thats coming from an OCD driven model!
Seriously though, I was under the impression you could gain muscle with minimal fat at around 1 to 2 pounds per month.
