I agree with BUNNYKICKS. Protein is needed to help build muscle, and recover, but without adequate strength training and a calorie surplus, you're not going to build muscle just by eating more protein.

To build muscle, you need to do some sort of resistance/strength training. Diet alone will not build it.

To support your exercise regime and goal to build muscle, just aim for the high end of your protein range.

So I'm already in the normal weight range (about 6 lbs from my ideal weight) and I'm really looking to build some muscle. Spark people recommended for me to eat between 60 - 136 grams of protein a day as part of my weight loss program. I feel like that is a very large range so I was wondering how much I really should be eating to promote muscle gain? Also, are there any other nutrients or vitamins I should concentrate on to help build muscle? Thanks!
