    What are you doing at the gym, and more importantly, how are you eating?

    2 years with so size sounds like a result from lack of calories and bad programming. Find a surplus and get on a proven strength program

    1) Eat in a calorie surplus. You need to make sure you're taking in more calories than you burn. If you aren't gaining body weight consistently, then you are not in a surplus. Track your diet, see how your weight responds, and increase if necessary until you're gaining around half a pound per week or so.

    2) Get stronger. Start tracking all of your workouts in terms of weight and reps, and then place 100% of your focus on "beating the logbook" each week. Don't "wing it" or "keep it in your head" - WRITE IT DOWN! You will progress far quicker this way, and gaining strength is by far the most important aspect of building muscle. You can either progress by performing more reps with a given weight, or by increasing the weight itself.

    Follow these tips to make consistent gains. Even if you just follow these two things alone you'll already be guaranteed to make decent gains. And on the other hand, if you aren't following both of them, you're guaranteed to make little to no gains at all.

    Can you elaborate on the eating problem? Is it a disorder or allergies/restrictions?

    Also, solid workout program. I'd maybe try and hit upper body in two days and make this a 4 day split so you have more frequency -- for example:

    Chest & Back (DAY 1),
    Shoulders & Arms (DAY 2),
    Legs (Day 3),
    Rest (Day 4)...
    and then start Day 1 again the following day.

    Where did you find this program? It looks pretty advanced and if you are just starting out the bro split isn't necessary you might want to look for a good upper/lower split or even fullbody program. I would especially look for one that doesn't have just one leg day -- you'll hate that day with a passion, and having a specific day for chest and then one for shoulders/tri's just isn't necessary.

    What are your food restrictions and are they medical?
