Well its been about a month and I started at somewhere between 125-130lbs and am now at somewhere between 135-140. Im guessing about 10lbs in 1month. So that would be...2-3lbs a week.

I can defintaly notice the difference my arms/chest/legs have more definition and are bigger(so is my tummy=( but only at the end of the day=) ) How long should I bulk for I don't want to gain so much fat that all my hard work will be covered up by it but I know I have to gain some and thats ok. Im guessing 3more months or so I should be at 175-180 then I would have to cut down. Does this sound good?

5-10lbs in a month is not bad.

I think you're eating much too much for someone your size. Your protein intake is about twice as much as it needs to be.

Just keep eating, you can cut later.

Yea it might seem like alot but im 17 years old(young) and my metabolism is fast so I need to eat. It got me gaining 2-3lbs a week so it seems fine. I do agree that it is alot of protein but I get my gallon of water aday and I eat clean and when you eat clean you get alot of protein from your foods.

As long as you're comfortable with whatever fat you gain, keep going. You're still growing, so eat up. See my signature for further advice.

Yea. You're not eating too much at all. If you wanna get big u gotta eat a lot. And plus you just started so you will gain muscle alot faster than someone with more experience. And as its already been stated, if u gain more fat than you like, just cut down the cals a little bit.

Are you trying to get bigger because you are planning on not eating for a while?

"Am I gaining to fast?"

(Thinking it should have been "too fast". Sorry, I should be this anal with my diet rather than other people's typing.
