    Actually, it's a chicken and egg sort of thing, whether you bulk or cut first. Keep in mind that this is not a matter for a few months, but for a lifetime.

    I'd bulk first, but that's just me. If you cut first, you'll need to bulk later. If you bulk first, you'll need to cut later.

    Often it's wise to consider where and when you're gonna be. For example, it's a good thing to be cut and looking good for the 'swimsuit months'. Or perhaps if there's going to be a wedding or a class reunion, where you'd want to look sharp. Do your bulking when you can wear a sweatshirt.

    I would strongly advise not to cut until at least a year of bulking. But it's up to you at the end of the day.
    A fat girl with big tits, A skinny guy with abs. There far from impressive.

    As for your diet, ratios (aka 15/70/15) aren't very accurate when it comes to dieting. What you want are values that are tailored to you specifically (not just tailored to an average person). So you eat a certain amount of protein depending on how much muscle you have and find out a more accurate daily maintenance of calories. To learn how to do this. Try reading this thread linked here: it's what i use and it hasn't steered me wrong yet.
