Because of the natural gains curve, it makes more sense to lean towards a more conservative approach with each additional pound of muscle you gain.

While how aggressively you eat is up to you, it is a reality that naturals can't continue to add unending amounts of muscle, so aggressive bulks once you are past heavy beginner gains is a waste of food.

It is my opinion that if you are young and a beginner you should eat aggressively if your training is as it should be. Once you are past beginner gains, a moderate clean bulk is the way to go.

Cutting? It's for competitors. Or beach goers.

I will also mention that far too many young lifters undereat and wonder why gains aren't coming. Undereating has far more of a downside than overeating if you are training hard.
