I'm currently cutting, but I plan on following the cut with another 10 week bulk. At the end of my 4th and final week of cutting my cals will be 2000/day. The plan is to begin increasing the cals by 500/week for 4 weeks PCT so that I'm back at 4000/day at the start of my bulk. The breakdown now and PCT will be 45P/30C/25F. When I start the bulk I'll switch to 30P/45C/25F. I think the high protein should minimize any catabolism and fat gain during PCT.

Raising your calories gradually is the key. Going from 2000 cals one day to 3500 the next will definitely lead to fat retention. Add a few hundred more cals every few days until you are back up to maintenance, do this over about 2 weeks. candle is right on with the protein intake too, keep that real high.
You can try using 7-oxo DHEA as well to keep from adding fat back on.

I diet with cycles thrown in there sporadically. I tend to eat closer to maintenance during PCT, but never above, I also back off on the cardio a little. I've had very good results with this method so far. Proper post-workout nutrition is curcial during PCT (moreso than while "on" IMHO) for retaining gains.
