what's been working best for me (for putting on size) is simply having proteins, carbs, and fats in every meal. I do usually between 40-60 carbs, 40-50 proteins, and 15-20 fats per meal. I feel better than ever after every single meal.

Have you ever tried taking the natty PB, and putting it in a bowl of fat free cottage cheese, and stirring the two up together and eating it with a spoon.
Cuz if you haven't, I don't recommend that you try it.

have you ever wondered why you sweat at night and sometimes not so much during the day. even though your body naturally lowered its temps 1-2 degrees so it can work harder.
you do realize your body is always burning calories. whether you do nothing or something. clearly if you do more you burn more.

Just because people get satisfactory results carb cycling does not itself imply that failure to do so will result in unsatisfactory results.
High carb/low fat meals produce higher peak insulin levels but are shorter in duration. However carbs are less likely to be stored as fat because it requires conversion and the higher insulin levels also promote protein synthesis. Low carb/high fat meals on the other hand produce less peak insulin levels but the duration is longer. Fat calories on the other hand are more likely than carbs to be stored as fat because no conversion is required.
Think of it as sports car that accelerates quickly to the speed limit and then coasts to the next stop versus an econobox that accelerates more slowly and stays under power longer. Which is better is hard to say; the end results can be very similar.
IMO discussing macronutrient ratio effects on bodyweight management in the absence of calorie consumption and expenditure considerations is way too broad but is often done. Hence all the rhetoric on insulin management via carb cycling and carb + fat exclusion.

In fact, many competitive bodybuilders get shredded by consuming carbs at night. My carb loads in pre-contest dieting were the last meal of the day, just before bed.

Were you using fat free cottage cheese?
I always use the FF stuff and its good. Safeway had a deal on 1% CC so I bought a few tubs. I will agree, mixing PB with this stuff is completely different. I can't place it, maybe too salty or something, but nowhere near as good as the FF stuff.
