I'd actually say tracking Macros > than Calories. If you're hitting your set up macros you're hitting your calories anyway.
Agree that first priority is protein then the other macro nutrients.
If you're interested in taking your physique to the next level be it by cutting or bulking (besides all out powerlifting/pure bulk) keeping track of what you eat is important. It's important for your health as well particularly as we age.
