Hey i am 15 5'10'' and around 133 lbs, was considering doing GOMAD or some kind of mass gain diet for about 2 months. Routine is gonna be 5x5 plus some swimming and agility work hoping to gain over 15 pounds in 2 months and wanting it to be at least (hopefully more on the side of muscle) 50/50 ratio. not wanting to lose all of speed and agility. Also wondering on how many carbs/ day i should take in on this, input would be helpful. Goals are to get a bit bigger to not get crushed playing linebacker next year in HS

Oh, sorry. That sentence should have been split up better (i.e. "...a SHIT TON of cooked vegetables, with some honey and berries at night"). The vegetables were during the day, the honey and berries were before bed.

I am curious why you chose to take the starchy part of the carb load at the end of the day instead of at the start?

The non-starchy vegetables contain very little carbohydrate and take about as much energy to digest as they give back. You eat those for nutrients not calories.

I'm a 28 year old 5'5'' male. Last year I managed to shoot up from ~128 to ~145 between August and December, so approximately four and 1/2 months. I did this with with 120-140g of protein per day and filling the rest with approximately a 5:4 ratio of carbs/fats (while trying to keep it as nutrient dense as possible, the carbs were really a SHIT TON of cooked vegetables with some honey and berries at night). My training was a 5x5 of solely compound movements (i.e. deadlifts, squats, bench press and weighted chins).

I managed 18lbs in that time, but you're 15. I wouldn't surprised if with the right stimulation you managed some good gains. I am not sure about 15 lbs in 2 months, but you can definitely make excellent gains by that deadline and then just keep going.
