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.
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.
