What are the foods that make your butt bigger? Well there isn’t an actual food that will make your butt bigger. You need to do weight-training exercises that have enough resistance to help build your glutes. Those exercises are like squats, lunges, leg press, wall-sits, sprinting on the track. These are all great anaerobic exercises that will help grow your butt.

Also, if you combine the glute focused weight-training exercises along with a high protein diet then this will help facilitate muscle growth. And that is the best formula for a successful bigger butt.

Here are some good protein foods that can help with muscle growth for growing a bigger butt.

Eggs have about 6 grams of protein per one medium egg. Leucine is found in eggs, and it is an amino acid that helps to stimulate muscle growth while reducing muscle breakdown.

Quinoa has about 8 grams of protein per serving. And it contains 9 essential amino acids.

Legumes are like beans, peas, lentils, or peanuts.  One cup of cooked lentils contains 18 grams of protein. One cup of chickpeas contains 15 grams of protein.

Milk contains 8 grams of protein per 1 cup. There was a study that found that males who drink milk during their 6 weeks of weight-training increased their lean muscle mass and strength compared to the placebo group that didn’t drink any milk. There is research that has shown that drinking milk after exercise can help with reducing muscle soreness and recovery.

Salmon has a good source of protein and contains 20 grams of protein per 4 ounce serving. It has a lot of Omega 3 fatty acids that your body needs. There was a study of about 44 people that took omega 3 fatty acids for 6 months. And it helped in decreasing their muscle loss. There is also research that shows omega 3 fats help with inflammation and can expedite muscle recovery and growth.

Flaxseed is a good way of adding protein to your diet. Two teaspoons of flaxseed contain about 4 grams of plant-based protein. It also has a good amount of omega 3 fatty acids as well as magnesium, B vitamins, and phosphorus.

Greek Yogurt contains about 24 grams of protein per one cup. There was a study where the group consumed Greek yogurt for 12 weeks. And the result was an improvement in muscle, strength, and body composition.

Chicken Breast has about 24 grams of protein in a 3-ounce serving. There was an 8-week study where 41 people in that group ate 46 grams of chicken. They did this after working out and it led to significant increases in lean muscle mass.

“Protein is the building blocks to muscle growth. So, you can’t grow a shapely toned bigger butt without consuming enough protein to facilitate the muscle growth. But also, on the flip side you can’t build that part of your body without doing regular resistance training exercises such as squats, leg press, lunges, leg press.” Celebrity Fitness Expert Obi Obadike

Tuna has about 27 grams of protein per 1 can. Research studies have shown that omega 3 consumption can prevent muscle mass loss. And this can help with preventing muscle loss in your glutes, provided you are keeping up with those glutes focused resistance exercises.

Tilapia has 23 grams of protein per one fillet. And it has magnesium, vitamin B-12, phosphorus, and niacin.  There are research studies that have shown that magnesium consumption is linked to increased handgrip strength and total body mass.

The Bottom Line is to build muscles in your glutes or any part of your body you need dietary protein. Protein is the building blocks to muscle growth. So, you can’t grow a shapely toned bigger butt without consuming enough protein to facilitate the muscle growth.

But also, on the flip side you can’t build that part of your body without doing regular resistance training exercises such as squats, leg press, lunges, leg press.
