I don't worry as much about the calories or the macros, I'm not trying to get to 4% bodyfat on a specific date to stand on stage and get judged, I worry more about maintaining my fitness levels and trying to stay lean. I usually just count protein and eat clean.
Reading labels and making smart choices is the way to go. That's really the only way to be sure what you're eating.
I haven't done a show in a couple years now due to surgery, but I am getting back to it. I will be honest though, there are plenty of days I consider doing it like you are. At the end of the day that is a healthier and easier lifestyle.
