not 10 years... but will take you a bloody long time. Do bulk and cut cycles man... if you want to put on that much mass (im assuming you are somewhat impatienT? correct me if im wrong) then youll have to expect some fat int here.

ridicolous, who cares about having a sixpack all year round anyway. if u wanna gain muscle naturally u have to prepare to put on some bulk, then cut, then bulk, repeat that prosess a couple of times over several years and what ull have left is 20 extra pounds of muscle and u will be lean with that sixpack.

If you want to put that sort of mass on in a short space of tie then say good bye to abs. Abs show through good conditioning which means less bodyfat and you can't put on that much clean muscle mass that quickly especially if you've been training for a while. You have to decide what you want more - the extra size or the 6 pack. If you want both then eat clean and you'll have to grow slowly.

It's all about persistence and pushing myself in the gym. Seriously it's nothing to do with my diet - it's the training and the genes. A typical non-training day for me consists of:

Cereal with full fat milk and my supplements in the morning.
3 hours later it's crisps, chocolate and some fruit
3 hours later its a microwave meal or sandwiches with chocolate and some fruit
3 hours later its crisps, chocolate and fruit again, maybe some cake
3 hours later its meat with either rice, pasta, or potatoes and veg
Then over the course of the evening I have a whole packet of choolate biscuits and about 2 pints of milk.
If I'm working a night shift I'll normally have another 3 meals consisting of crisps, chocolate, fruit and another cooked meal of some sort.

Training days differ only by virtue of having pre and post workout shakes along with the above.

I eat a whole host of shite along with my main square meals just to up the calorie intake and still I stay lean.
