Default Suggestions are needed

Hello everyone. I have just registered to this website, read some articles and I hope I can expect to get some help here. First of all, sorry for my english grammar and so on, I am from Lithuania.

Aight, so I am 17 years old at a weight 167.5 pounds and a height of 5 feet 11 inches. Yeah, I am slim. I've been going to gym for about 6months. I can see the difference between the weighs I've been lifting before and now but I can't feel the difference between my appearance (ok, maybe a lil bit). I try to eat as much as I can, like 6-7 times per day. My 3 days/week workout was too weak I guess so I would like to ask which workout is better to get bigger: 3 days/week or 5days/week(I do have enough time for that)?
I know that bodybuilding is a sport that requires lots of time and energy but I am gonna do whatever it takes to get in real good shape. Btw, my ideal is Dr. Dre

Have you increased weight in the last 6 months while working out?

If not, you need to eat more and lift heavier.

Are you doing full body workouts 3x a week?

eat more, maybe add some supplements, add more training variation, but still stick to the 3 days a week.

Thanks guys. Well, I guess I gained 1KG in these 6 months :( that sucks! I don't really know what fullbody means, could you give me an example? Does fullbody mean I have to do isolated exercises and so on or is it a workout based on compound exercises?

The workout I was doing 3 times a week for 6 months was:

Flat Bench Press 4x8
Incline Bench Press 3x8
Dumbbell Flys 3x8
Bicep Curl while standing (don't know how you call it :P ) 3x8
Concentrated Curls 3x8

Deadlift 4x8
Pull ups 3xmax(mostly 12,10,8)
Dumbell Rows 4x8
Barbell Triceps Extension 4x8
Triceps Dip 3xmax(mostly 15,12,10)

Barbell Squat 5x8
Leg Extension 3x8
Calf Raises 3x15
Barbell Behind Neck Press 4x8
Dumbbell Lateral Raise 3x8

By the way, I heard that it's better to change workout sometimes, so muscles don't get used to the load.

Thanks again

I would start off by jacking up your calories and lift heavier weights. By the sounds of it, 1kg in 6months... something just isnt quite right!

Stick to a plan, and stick with it for a few months. People try and change things up far too often when they dont see results immediately.

Stick with it, and keep on researching and asking questions!
Knowledge is power.
