In brief: Resistance excercise

Do anaerobic resistance exercise, usually weight lifting and eat well.
Whether you should increase your protein intake is controversial i say yes, but there have been vegetarian body builders. My guess is that there is a genetic component to muscle development and these individuals just have a propensity.

In brief: Exercise

Assuming that there are no pathological problems you can only build muscle with protein and exercise(assuming no use of any medications).
