I am not an expert, but seems to me like working both together. Higher calorie w/higher carb day, and even in conjuction with a workout day.
My workouts are not anything to write home about, so I usually try to stay on the low ends (w/some mediums days just occuring) - I try to stay low end during the week, and then a higher calorie about every 5-7 days.
If I were working out more, I would bump that up to every 3rd day.
When I work out more, and during the summer when I work more outside, I am just naturally hungrier. I don't call the higher calorie days "cheat days". I still eat good whole foods, just more of it. Maybe more potatoe, more sweet potato, etc.
