well figure out how many calories you need per day to maintain your weight. The best way to do that is to write down exactly what you eat for a week or two, and calculate the cals from there. After you know that figure, add 500 cals a day of CLEAN foods to bulk with minimal fat gain, and to cut, subtract 500 cals a day from your maintenance cals.

I'm sure other people have better methods, but that's the one i know of.
