Building bigger muscles is amount your workout routine, sleep, water and your diet.  Your diet should be well balanced and you need to make sure you are getting enough protein.

Step 1: Protein sources.  Make sure you eating the right foods for getting enough protein. Eggs, (Egg Whites are the best), fish, beef, chicken, milk, brown rice, whey.  These are good sources of protein and when properly prepared, are great sources of protein.

Step 2: For building bigger muscles you need to consume .4-.6g of protein for every pound of bodyweight.

Step 3: For those who are extreme body builders, .6g of protein is the highest you should go.  Some experts claim .5g for every pound is optimal, because the rest of the protein is excreted from you body.  Test your own body to determine proper results.

Step 4: If you are not a professional body builder or a workout junky, but you still want to build muscle, .4g per pound is probably a good level to be at.

Step 5: If you notice and increase in body fat, chances are you are getting too much protein, and you should reduce you intake.  If you are noticing a decrease in muscle building progress, you should probably increase you protein intake.
