Unfortunately when bulking up a little bit of a belly is inevitable.But if done properly you can maximize mass gain and limit fat gain.I suggest doing a search of the forums and you'll find the answers you need. Hope I helped:)

Oh okay.The calculations I know are

1)bodyweight x 15(To calulate cals needed for mass gain)

2)Consume 1-1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight

3)Consume 2-2.5g of carbs per pound of bodyweight

4)And consume around 60-80g of fat preferably mostly Flax Seed Oil

I think that a popular diet ratio for bulking is 60/30/10 60% Carbs,30% Protein and 10% fat

Personally I don't follow any particular ratio I just eat alot of food and it seems to be working for me.

With 60% carbs you will be bloated like an alcoholic :D
Try 40/30/30,have some EFA's (flaxseed,olive oil),seperate carbs from fat (especially avoid high GI carbs with fat @ the same meal)
and definitaly buy some digestive enzymes.It will prevent bloating.

What do you mean by digestive enzymes?

Amylase,Betaine HCL,Cellulose,Peppermint oil etc...

You can even slightly increase your fiber intake.
