Okay, heres the deal:

I am 15, 5'7ish, and around 110 pounds. I have been working out for about 9 months now. I have seen size imporvement, but still my weight is very low. I am pretty lean, I can see a 4 pac with ease(very noticeable when flexed), but I can still have a tiny bit of fat, maybe 1 small grab of fat? I need an idea, on how to lose this bit of fat, but gain weight, atleast 10-15 pounds. (I have a very small bone structure-Could this have anything to do with weight) I consider myself to be stronger then average for my age, and muscle size reasonably bigger then average. So I don't understand why I am so light? I am encouraged to eat a lot of fat foods, like ice cream, chocolate and stuff like that, to put on weight, would this be adviced? I consider myself to be active, I go to the gym 4-5 times a week, and do cardio maybe around 3-4 times a week. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, in helping me reach my goal. Thanks in advance.

A lot of people have suggested this, but then won't I start putting fat on? Maybe cut it down to 2 times a week? I want to get rid of the last handful of fat, its like 1 small handful :P everywhere else im pretty skinny :) (Its not very noticeable)

110lbs at 5' 7", don't worry about that fat at all. Drop the cardio, go the the gym 3-4 times a week (more time for your body to recover). I'm 5' 7" 138 (120lbs last year) and I try and eat as cleanly as possibly but I really dont mind eating fast food 3-5 times a week and eating pizza and stuff whenever possible. I've found I can't put on fat no matter how hard I try, I can just very slowly gain some size (about 2 pounds on a good month).

edit: I also do no cardio at all, occasionally I ride a bike, but overall I am very inactive

Hehe, I ride my back 20 minutes everyday just to get to the gym, then do cardio on top of it? Do you think Biking is enough cardio? I always had the idea, that running was the actual real "fat burner" :p I am not worried, I have very little fat, looking on what I have seen on the pic section, I'm guessing 11-13% bf, just a guess could be less, pretty sure not more then 13.

It's not really an issue of burning fat. That's just a term that is thrown around a lot and doesn't have a lot of meaning to it. When you do a lot of cardio, you burn off calories that are needed to gain weight. So if you want to do a lot of cardio, you have to eat that much more to make sure you get a surplus of calories in your daily diet.

You really need to stop worrying about putting on fat. If you focus on putting on muscle you will lean out anyway.
If you are a guy 110 pounds is wayyyy to skinny.
EAT clean and alot!
Lift HEAVY
STOP CARDIO..
then eat some more..
