How little time needed to effectively lean out?

So far in my endeavors, I've been able to make darn good strength gains across the board, but I'm the 'hard gainer' type when it comes to size. I've had a few folks tell me to supplement with a weight gainer and/or to eat more. So I've thought about going ahead and doing that for ONE month... I've gone ahead and picked up some IDS Smart Gainer and I'm gonna try and fit an extra meal in somewhere during the day. If I do this and gain a few pounds...would a month and a half be enough to get the excess back off by the end of the transformation contest? Should I just do the gainer alone?

If you are truly a "Hardgainer" you should have little to no bodyfat, that being said, you are very unlikely to put on any fat if you are taking the "Gainer" shakes. You should be fine, as long as you aren't drinking three of them a day. Most of those are in the 1000 calorie range, some are twice that.

The key is to dial in your calories so that you don't gain too much fat, then there won't be any to cut after the fact. Patience is a virtue either way. You need to take your time bulking lean, or if you decide to do a quick bulk, you'll need to take your time leaning out to keep from burning the added lean mass. The simple answer is that there is no quick way, other than anabolics.

I dont think I'll add too much from the gainer. I ride my bike quite a bit, so it'll probably aid if anything in helping my get mass instead of all my cardio eating at the muscle gains. Maybe my bike riding is probably preventing quick buildup of mass. Too much cardio. But I can't cut that out...it's race season right now.

If you can map out your protein intake to maintain weight, then you should be able to effectively lean bulk... One of the nice things about having a quick metabolism.
