    What I can do is have less fatty foods and have protein mass gainer low in fat and burn some calories in the gym while bulking up then I won't be look fat while trying to look lean.

    Is that a good idea

    If you focus too much on staying lean while trying to put on muscle you will waste your time.

    Just eat well, eat clean 80% of the time, train hard.

    If you gain weight too fast, eat less.

    If you gain weight too slow, eat more.

    I will eat clean foods like vegetables fish, freekeh a type of durum wheat which is better then quinoa and less expensive etc..

    I feel protien mass gainer helps to keep fat levels down while upping your calorie intake.

    I will buy some protien mass gainer and continue to eat clean food and see if any improvements on my muscle mass.

    If you want to bulk up but you're worried about being overweight then you don't really want to bulk up

    I'm not worried being overweight cause when you bulk up to gain muscle mass BMI can't tell how much muscle mass you gained it will say your over weight Infact your not over weight at all just need fat level to be down.

    BMI doesn’t really indicate whether your overweight, maybe for people who don’t train at all (in your case it may be relevant as guessing you haven’t done much training at the moment)

    bodyfat is what determines whether your overweight, and people’s (and your own maybe) perception of this also depends on how much muscle mass you have. Ie 280lb at 20% is very different to 140 at 20%

    I really wouldn’t worry at the moment about cutting or bulking, I would just train hard and consume sufficient protein. That will resolve many of the questions and issues your having
