Correct. Just about any "system" will do if you just stick with it.

Stop worrying about getting a big gut during bulking.
Go hard and heavy,and your metabolism will increase.
If you are not training hard , do not increase your calorific intake!
If you are training hard,you will naturally feel hungry at random times. Feed your body with the right [ clean] calories and you will not have an " excess fat" problem.

What's the right balance of carbs/fats/protein? Right now Im at a 40/30/40 split.
Also how important is the timing of meals? I get alot of protein in before and after i workout but the the majority of my carbs are in the afternoon and evening.

The big gut thing you are worrying about, is the HGH gut.
Professionals that take HGH help them recover, but it also makes their muscles, organs, bones, everything grow. So their organs in their gut grow, and press up agianst their rib cage, and pushes out their gut. They have a beer gut, that is ripped.

As for your timing of meals, this is how I time mine:
Breakfast is important. Get some vitamins, some fruit, some protein like eggs, and that is good. And some morning creatine is always good.
Then lunch. Again some protein, and carbs, maybe some vegetables.
Then your pre-workout. If you take pre-workouts that have caffeine in them, take them now. Also, anything called Nitric-oxide is a BS product. Take your creatine if you are trying creatine.
Then you take a post-workout. Something with protein, like whey and maybe some egg protein if you can factor it in. And it also helps to take some creatine, again if you are on it.
Then you have your evening meal. I usually down some more protein, and take some vegetables, some other stuff like that. Make sure you get your nutrients.
Then later in the night, if you take the casein shake, take that, and maybe some yogurt, some good food.

As for if you get on creatine, if you ever try it, only take Creatine Monohydrate. That is the kind that has several years of study, is shown to work. I would suggest micronized Creatine powder from Optimum Nutrition. I find taking it with juices, like grape, orange, apple, is best. But if you want, it is tasteless, so you can mix it into your protein shakes if you take those.

Again, this is all just a suggestion. You don't have to follow it. You can do, whatever the #$%* you wana do!

The truth is there are an infinite number of good diets out there. I've used Lyle MacDonald's low-carb stuff and actually gained weight and gotten pretty ripped. I've used higher carb, eat every X hours and gained weight and gotten ripped. Right now I'm on "The Warrior Diet" which is intermittent fasting, meaning you don't eat anything from dinner until lunch the next day. It's how I naturally eat anyway so it seems very natural for me and I'm doing great on it. Weight has stayed the same while my bodyfat has dropped by 4% in a little over a week.

this is a long thread ......

the bottom line is JUST DO IT!

anything is better than nothing and alter your plan as you go read your body and listen to it.

just remember what they say about opinions....there like a$$holes everybody has one and there all cracked!

Man,
Stop worrying about all of that , just eat until you feel like puking.
DON'T EAT JUNK. EAT CLEAN CALORIES.
Veggie - Eat plenty [ especially raw.]
Fish - Eat plenty,especially Salmon and Tuna.
Meats - Eat plenty LEAN meats.
Eggs - Eat Plenty. Start with 1/2 doz per day,and work upwards.
Yams - Eat Plenty.
Milk - Start with 1 litre / day.
Brown Rice - Yes
Flax Seed - Yes
Water - Drink Plenty.

Go to the gym and lift HEAVY. Stick with the basics,stick with compounds.

Get PLENTY of sleep. at least 8 hours.

In three months time everybody will be able to tell the difference.

actually, the consumption of animal products- including eggs, dairy and fish- not only contributes to horrific cruelty and suffering and environmental devastation it also is extremely unhealthy and unnecessary.

eating eggs this much is not friendly to the heart. You could try some soy if you like, its protein content is high.

perhaps you should read the articles and watch the video's so you can become more informed about the pain and misery that your choices cause others.
