Protein: Protein. You should eat 1 gram for every pound of ideal body weight. For instance, if your ideal body weight should be 180 pounds, then you should eat 180 grams of protein a day...As long as you don't have any kidney disease. Protein is found in meat, dairy, eggs and protein supplements.

Over eat ; exercise: Consistently eating more calories than you burn will eventually add fat as fat is the preferred storage for energy. Eating more protein and increasing exercise should gain muscle mass. Protein is not a primary energy source and is not stored, but will be added to muscle if needed.
