How can I gain fat while gaining muscle?

I know this sounds weird, but I’m aiming for my ideal body type, and that’s a lot of muscle with a bit of pudge to soften the look. Gaining/losing one while gaining/losing the other is hard enough by itself, but together… What can I do?

    Gaining weight in general comes from consuming more calories than you burn. Gaining muscle weight (or lean body mass) only comes from weight training. My suggestion would be to consume a more high calorie diet and focus on weight training rather than a lot of cardio. The only thing working against you is that the cells in you body responsible for burning calories are located in your muscle tissue. The more muscle you have, the more efficient you body is at burning calories. If your general health status can tolerate it, eat a more high calorie, higher fatty food diet. Fatty foods pack more “harder to burn” calories than simple carbs. Good luck. Be careful of your cholesterol.

    How did you determine this ideal body type? Well, to achieve it, you will need to live a bit unhealthy for a while. You need to take in a lot of fatty protein, like pork, drink lots of water to keep the muscle from cutting (looking lean) load up on carbohydrates so that the muscle doesn’t burn up the energy you are putting in, and do only bulking weight excercise. No aerobics, and no stamina excercise. Sounds like a bad idea to me, but it will do what you want it to do. Maintaining it if you are active is another question.
