What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

My nutrition plan for the offseason is lots of clean healthy food and one cheat day a week. I don't count calories in the offseason, just keep it clean and eat lots. My contest diet is my bodyweight multiplied by 12 for the amount of calories I eat a day, my bodyweight multiplied by 1.2 for the amount of protein and my bodyweight multiplied by 0.8 for the amount of carbs. The rest of the calories are from fat and one cheat meal a week.
