 Apart from exercising, you must also eat the right foods. Here are 4 food groups you must include in your diet:

Foods To Eat To Get A Bigger Butt

1. Protein

Muscles are made of protein. Your glutes can certainly get help if you consume protein in adequate amounts (2).

There are numerous ways of adding protein to your diet. Some good protein sources include skimmed milk, eggs, low-fat yogurt, fish, turkey, legumes, meat, soy protein, hemp protein, and whey protein.

2. Healthy Fats

The gluteal muscles are covered with a layer of fat. To get a bigger and shapely butt, you have to consume unsaturated fats (good fats). Good sources of unsaturated fats include fish oil, rice bran oil, avocado, nuts and seeds, oily fish, canola oil, sunflower oil, oily fish, nuts, olive oil, and peanut butter (3).

Do consult your dietitian or download a calorie counting app to know how much fat you can consume per day.

3. Carbs

It is important to consume a few carbohydrates (you should not ignore carbs completely). The quantity of carbohydrates depends on the level of resistance used during workouts (4). Some good sources of carbohydrates include vegetables, leafy greens, fruits, brown rice, barley, corn, oats, whole grain pasta, and wheat bread.

4. Micronutrients

Micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are essential for metabolism and tissue function (5). Fruits, veggies, nuts, and pulses are excellent sources of micronutrients. Since you are training hard to get a fuller and shapely butt, eat a lot of fruits and veggies to keep your body from becoming tired due to lack of energy production. Here’s a consolidated list of 25 foods to eat to get a bigger butt.

Finally, here are some ways you can make your butt appear bigger. Scroll down to the next section.

4 Tips To Make Your Buttocks Look Bigger

1. It’s All An Illusion

Wear clothes that make your buttocks look bigger. You can wear high-waisted jeans/shorts/formal pants, padded thongs, low-rise pants/jeans that are tapered near the ankles, balloon skirts or dresses, denim short skirts, silk gowns, peplum tops, etc.

2. Use Butt Enhancing Pads

Another effective way to get bigger buttocks fast is through the use of butt enhancing pads. You can get shapewear or padded inserts from stores. These are designed specifically to boost your buttocks’ appearance in a pair of jeans and pants.

3. Thin Your Waistline

Thinning your waistline will make your butt more prominent. You can always trick people into thinking that you have a big butt by simply cinching your waist. The best trick is wearing a tummy tucker.

4. Use Butt Enhancing Creams

Call it fiction or fact, but you can give butt enhancing creams a go. Here are the 10 best butt enhancing creams you can try out.


Surgical procedures are available that ensure quick butt enhancement (6). However, exercising, along with a proper diet, can provide lasting results without too much monetary investment and side effects. So, make a wise decision. Take care!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time will it take for my buttocks to get bigger?

Keep your goals realistic. Depending on your current body weight or body fat, workout routine, eating habits, and lifestyle changes, you will slowly start to notice that your buttock muscles have toned up by the end of the third week. Also, do not stop eating good fats. This will help build the fat above your gluteal muscles.

Why isn’t my butt getting bigger?

Have some patience. Your current body weight, medical history, workout routines, eating habits, etc. are all important factors you need to consider and monitor properly to get a bigger butt. Get a calorie counting app and monitor your protein, fat, and carb intake every day. Get a diet chart prepared by your dietitian. Also, remember, your genes play a major role here.

How do I get a rounder butt?

Follow all the exercises, diet, and lifestyle points mentioned above. Also, get your trainer and dietitian to work closely to help you achieve your goals.

Can I get a bigger buttock without working out?

Yes, probably, if you just munch on a lot of potato wafers and eat three meals of fast food and sit all day long! You have to work it out, girl. If you eat only fat-rich food, there is no guarantee that the fat will build-up in your buttocks; it can get accumulated anywhere in your body. This will eventually make you look out of shape. Take a friend along to your workout sessions to make them fun.

Will massaging the buttocks make them bigger?

Massaging your buttocks will help loosen up tight butt muscles and improve circulation. While it may not make your butt bigger, it will help shape up and improve your posture.

Does walking tone your butt?

No, walking is a cardio exercise. It will cause fat and muscle loss from the entire body. You must squat, lunge, leg press, and practice donkey kicks to tone your butt.

How many squats should I do a day to get a bigger butt?

Start with 3 sets of 15 squats per day. Make sure your posture is correct. As you progress, you may add more reps and sets. Here’s a beginner’s guide to squats.
