There’s no particular food actually builds muscle by itself. The best way to build muscle is go to the gym and lift weights.
Foods you can eat to help the best results are lots of protein and low fat food, chicken is a perfect example, healthy carbs such as rice, brown rice are really good.
Try and avoid high sodium based foods and high fat foods, for example pizza, burgers and basically just junk food in general.
A healthy source of fats is fish oil, tinned tuna is really good for this, salmon is also good.

in terms of work outs, weight training is the way to go.

compound exercises, 4-5 sets of 8-10 reps, split them up, so arms/chest one day, lower body another. You do need rest days for actually allowing muscle growth

do the lot, squats, lunges, deadlifts, cleans, burpees, walking lunges, and plyometric moves too are great, like jump squats and box jumps (could use weights too)

Simple answer, look up the shortcut to size pdf and just follow that. Longer answer, if your willing to do research then I would suggest do a Power Hypertrophy Upper Lower split and periodise it in the same way as shortcut to size.

firstly,you should calculate the calories that you need for one day.after that you take nearly 300-400 extra calories than you need.you can gain 0.5 kg in the best healthy way every week.
ı recommend myfitnnespal to calculate calories
