Get over it!

If you gain weight that quickly, you will gain 30 lbs of fat and 5 lbs of muscle at the very most (if you train perfectly). That is not an exaggeration.

Eat lots of nutrient dense food, with a lot of protein and vegetables. Don't gain more than 1 lb per week.

Don't underfeed, but don't overfeed. There is a point at which more calories will not mean more muscle growth. That point is only a little bit higher than maintenance calories without the aid of steroids.

Agreed . . . 30-40 lbs. of GOOD (lean) weight by Summer. . . that's not gonna happen.

Probably won't happen in a couple of years.

If you figure out otherwise, please post your information, everyone on this board would like to know how you did it, so we can too.

30-40 lbs may be over board but dont get discouraged - in the next 3-4 months you can make a lot of progress especially at your age. Stick with it.
