I have to be honest. I'd completely blow off the idea of regular fasting while trying to mass gain.

If you must fast, do it a couple times a week, tops. Otherwise eat indiscriminantly. You're going to get a little chubby, it's pretty much what happens. Just wear more sweaters, it's cold out (edit here: ) nobody will notice the gut.

or you would have some plan or anything
The info you need has already been said....now just time to go do it for several weeks and see what happens....then you will know how to adjust. Planning for the perfect program will lead to no gains....as internet forums are full of people who want the perfect plan, but never go do anything. Take action, see what happens....adjust as needed.
