Yep, that's the way i do it, too.
Protein is important for muscle growth, but it's overrated and NOT important for builing strength.
No one said it would be easy.

If Daywalker isn't counting, maybe you don't have to...

But so many competitive bb-ers are obsessed with counting everything: protein, carbs, fat, total cals...
Is it really not that important? How do you know what to adjust if you don't know where the numbers are? I'm trying to learn here...

Knowing what you eat is important for any performance athlete as fuel is a component of your performance ability. Whether that means micromanaging and spreadsheeting your diet or just being aware of quantities of food and what's in them and generally how much you're eating and meeting certain baselines.... probably depends on the sport.
