Cardio days do not require any added calories. If you are weight training, you will want to eat an additional 400-500 calories on workout days.

My metabolism is higher than most...on non-workout days I eat around 3600 calories and on workout days I have to eat between 4000-4100. The 3600 calorie intake is meant to only be a maintaining amount. So if I did not work out that much, I would stay around the same weight and build with this amount. But since I'm trying to put on muscle, on workout days I have to compensate by adding fuel to repair the damage I do in the gym.

Just eat healthy, maximize your protein and reduce your carbs. Stay active you should do fine.

Low fat, low carbs, Moderate protein. You'll do fine, like Scarecrow has already mentioned.

plenty of good fat, low-gi carbs except before and after working out, good amounts of protein.

eating more good fats= your body burns more fat
fewer carbs= less insulin released, fat storage goes down, anabolic potential goes up
more protein= more muscle, higher insulin sensitivity, more anabolic activity, tons of other good things

Focus on the kind of calories you are getting more than anything. You need to cut fatty foods from your diet; stick to LEAN protein sources only. You can't be drinking alcohol or soda or any shitty preservative juices; stick to water. Also cut your carb count lower and stick to healthy carbs. Check out this article too: Click Me
