Why can't you build muscle by working out? You don't eat enough :

Why can't you build muscle by working out?  You don't eat enough 
Sports nutrition is the most important variable in your quest for mass gain. If your goal is to gain weight by gaining lean muscle mass, you will necessarily have to increase your caloric intake above your daily caloric needs.


According to the National Strength and Conditioning Association, if you want to build lean muscle, you will need to consume about 10 to 15% more calories than you need to maintain your current weight.
If you consume 2,500 calories a day to maintain your weight, you should aim for between 2,750 and 2,875 calories to gain weight. If you don't know how many calories you consume every day, it's high time to create a nutrition journal to track what you eat and drink. Of course, healthy foods such as white meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds (oilseeds), vegetables and fruits are preferred.
