People ask how many cheat meals I take. Well, I'm a oil tanker. They can take hours to turn but once they are on course, its very easy to stay on course. I am in the "maintainers" group as I reached my genetic max long ago and keep my bodyfat within narrow bounds. At most, I need to diet 2 weeks a year to make minor course corrections in bodyfat - say to reduce from 9% to 8%. Very, very slight rudder corrections are all I need to keep me on course with my physique.
