A safe way to gain w/o getting too fat is about 1lb / week. Same for losing. 1lb / week and you shouldn't lose too much muscle.
I lost way too fast, but it was on purpose too. I won out of my gym, and got a free 1 year membership. If I win the overall between the 9 gyms, I get $10 / lb also.
Losing too fast cost me some muscle as well as fat, but oh well, it will be fun getting that muscle back.
