Not a smart breakfast either. As stated above, you need more protein, and I don't want to sound like Tony the Tiger or anything, but breakfast is the most important meal.

Buy some protein powder and mix it in with some oats (not the already flavored oatmeal) and if you want to sweeten it then put some cinnamon sugar in there.

But a 3/4 of Cheerios is a joke. Do you really know how much a 3/4 a cup is?

If you don't have a good breakfast than you're more likely to break you diet and binge eat because you are so hungry.

Also, a snack shouldn't be liquid or water, it won't cause satiety and you are more prone to grab another snack. Add a Nutragrain bar or something. It won't cause satiety and you are more prone to grab another snack.

And be realistic, you can't have the same thing everyday. Make 5 to 7 options for each breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

i don't think anyone in the world would think you're skinny at 155 lbs. eat more, lift heavy weight and sleep. Only way to grow. Do you know how many calories that is? It can't be very much unless you're having a monster of a dinner.

If you cant stand cottage cheese you need to learn to love it.
If you just cant bare the taste, heres what i do:

put a couple of spoonfulls of cottage cheese into a bowl
slap a scoop(or more, depending on your liking) of natural peanut butter in with it
sprinkle a bit of your protein powder on top(makes flavored cottage cheese essentially)
and after that add what you like, whether it be granola, nuts or something of the like.

for me specifically i put the cottage cheese, 1 scoop of pb, i use chocolate ON casein (usually have this late at night) and on top i sprinkle "heavenly chocolate" flavored bearnaked 100% granola.
it is fucking DELICIOUS and has just short of 30g's of protein

its gunna be almost impossible to add muscle and lose body fat. id think about eating more, lifting heavier, and getting enough rest like stated. and from there you can worry about cutting

So if you don't eat enough you won't gain muscle?

I get enough sleep & lift heavy but some days I don't get to my 2500-3000 calorie range.

Not necessarily, but you wont bulk up as much. Your diet has a lot more to do with "working out" than the actual working out part as funny as that sounds. What you eat all depends on your goal though.
Overall if you are trying to gain strength/mass I would eat, eat, eat. Try and break down your meals into 6 throughout the day and just make sure each one is chock full of protein.

There is no secret to putting on mass. The more you eat, the more you will put-on. I don't care how heavy you lift or what supplements you are on. If you don't eat, you are wasting your time.

you need to work on your diet if you want to get bigger. more protein, more carbs, less junk food.

yeah i mean its actually alot more simple if you want just a clean cut answer.
more chicken, steak, rice, broccoli, peanut butter, nuts, cottage cheese, and milk.
all day everyday. throw in a whey protein shake for help as well. i would personally recommend optimum nutrition

need advice

my current workout consists of this

monday-chest/tri
tuesday-back/bi
friday-shoulder/legs

everytime i do tri's after chest/bi's after back/back after bi's i'm not usin the fullest capabilities of my muscles cuz they're tired by then. should i switch it to chest/back and bicep/triceps?

or will chest/tri get me stronger and i just keep pushin at it. i feel weaker though and my lifting drops considerably

I work my legs purely for the testosterone. Squatting is probably the most important lift of any routine. You get your squat up and everything else will follow (bench, deadlift, military press: they will all get better).

that's bro science designed to get bro's to do squats. You should want to be balanced. Top heavy is just lame.

I would personally include calves on your leg day if time permits. Also, my recommendation is to do majority of chest workout on your chest/tri days and the back workouts on your back/bi days. Seeing as the compound exercises for chest and back stimulate your triceps and biceps theres no need to put too much focus on isolating those two muscles. Most people tend to overwork their biceps especially. Not trying to preach to the choir just trying to offer helpful advice.

this. make sure you know what your doing before taking something like creatine. not that its dangerous or anything really but you should be educated on a product before taking it. also, including a drink like apple or grape juice with creatine post workout is not a bad idea.
