It is so much easier to stay lean year-round than to get thin/get fat/get thin. Sean sticks with his diet for the entire year, so he doesn't need to switch on and off. This stability helped him create a physique and keep it.
Portion sizes are pretty simple for Sean. He gets all his carbs from vegetables - a serving is a handful. He counts protein servings based on ounces, but he uses his fist to measure other foods. He carries all his meals with him through the day, so he's ready when hunger strikes. Sean is nothing if not prepared.
The most important thing about nutrition is consistency. You can't just diet for 12 weeks, then hit the buffet twice per week. Sean said he believes in cheat meals - but not cheat months. If you really want to change your body, your whole life requires change for the long term.

Sean's Nutrition Philosophy
Says Sean: "I believe in working smart. If you eat clean, you'll be lean. Too many people tend to want to count calories, carbs, fats, etc. All that thinking can overwhelm a person or just make them lose interest! I can't even tell you how many times I've said this and believe it: "You can ask 100 trainers their opinion, but it will never help you as much as doing your own research and coming to your own conclusions."
