I'd like to know how long your average bulk and cut cycles are. Also, I'd be interested in knowing what your primary goal is (IE, strength, size, leanness, etc.). I used to alternate with such frequently that I ended up just spinning my wheels with little progress. As a former fat-body, I feared any fat gain. Currently, I am learning that carrying more fat than I'd like is part of the cost associated with success in weightlifting. Never have my been heavier nor my workouts more productive and rewarding. Economists like to say rational people think on the margin, and that is very true when it comes to fat gains. I might go a year without looking to lose fat while making sure to avoid ballooning up for "bulking's" sake. So how about you?
