In brief: Eat healthy

Building muscle has more to do with the kinds of exercise you do than diet.
However, one does need more protein to build muscle but much less than most think. Eat 5-6servings of lean protein per day along with a a healthy balance of vegetables and unsaturated fat. Consult with a nutritionist for further details.
