To build muscles you need extra energy rather than your daily intake. Define you intake using BMI calculator and set your target above the value that you body needs. Studies recommend levels between 1.3-1.7g of protein per kilogram of body weight for training athletes. That means that 150 lb person needs 91-119 g of protein per day that equals a double amount of protein set by FDA 2000 cal diet.
