Here are some more newbie questions. Bear with me.
I'm on what you could consider a bulking diet in that I'm eating more times per day with more food per sitting. I have no idea what the calories are because I haven't gotten that far. Or what the ratio is p/c/f. I know I'm getting a lot of carbs and protein and I'm sure the fat is there too. My question is how long should the bulking diet last before I go to a cutting diet? I have no idea what gains I should be looking for. Thanks for any advice.

I know a lot of this info is here in articles and I do read when I get time, but I'd like some opinions too.

Should a cutting diet utilize AMR or less calories?
