    Questions regarding gaining weight/losing weight.

    I'm a 15-year-old male, 141 lbs, and 5'10. I go to the gym 4 days per week and do the fierce 5 upper/lower program.

    I want to gain weight and strength but I'm not sure where to begin. I already eat school breakfast and school lunch, and then a homemade meal with veggies/chicken and rice after the gym. I also eat dinner later as well. I'm not sure how many calories they add up to.

    1) If I'm eating a calorie surplus and gaining weight, wouldn't I be gaining fat and not muscles?
    2) If I want to get abs, and I have to go into a calorie deficit to do that. Wouldn't I be losing muscle and strength?
    3) Should I eat more and get more muscles/strength first and not worry about my belly fat?
    4) Is it possible to gain bodyweight but lose my belly fat at the same time?

    1. If you're eating in a surplus with adequate protein and working out you'll be gaining both muscle and fat. Lower surplus = higher % of gain is muscle
    2. Not necessarily. You can go into a small deficit and still gain muscle and strength while losing body fat (don't listen to people who say you can't)
    3. That depends on your priorities. If you don't care about belly fat you can gain muscle quicker.
    4. Theoretically yes. A pound of muscle is only 700 calories (80% water) while a pound of fat is 3500 calories. In practice though it will be extremely hard to gain muscle that fast.
