How can you guys track Calories to within 100?

I see some people talk about eating "200 Calories" over maintenance and stuff like that. How can you possibly estimate that with such precision? (Especially if you cook or measure things out by eye). Is it true that some people know their Calorie intake to within 200 Calories?

My first bulk

So earlier I have made some posts about me cutting (Going from 78kg(171 pounds) to 68kg (150 pounds)). I wanted to get even skinnier before starting bulking but because of the harsh weather and the little calories I need to eat to cut it isn't sustainable as I keep getting sick. I have then decided...

Question is beer like carbs? I drank 4 pints so is that +800 Calories?

I drank 4 pints today and as I've been cutting, I looked up how much that is in Calories, it's about 800. That's quite a bit, and could obliterate some of my deficit for the day - so does it really all get used up by the body and turned to fat, the way Carbs would? Or is there some saving grace...

Stuff like steamed broccoli or frozen vegetables, chicken/fish is rather bland. Can you recommend seasonings that make these tasty, without a lot of sodium or other nutritional value? (Not many/any calories). What is a generic go-to?
