You need to get more meals in throughout the day, try 1.5-2.5 hours before each meal(smaller meals). Also you have very little protein in your breakfast. I added up roughly 120 grams of protein without your protein shakes. You should be able to get much more than that from natural foods EASILY. Add some chicken and beef in there, maybe switch out the yogurt for greek yogurt(more protein, less carbs and sugar).

An easy way to add more protein to your diet is to add some whey protein to each meal.
Say you eat some chicken and pasta for a meal. Add a scoop of whey protein and you have an extra 100 or so calories and 25g of protein.
You don't have to do this with every meal. I'd do it for breakfast and then an evening meal or something. Extra 50g protein right there. For breakfast, eggs are your friend.
An easy way to cram in extra nutrition is to make weight gainer shakes. Just get an electronic coffee grinder so you can grind up oatmeal into a powder. Based on your needs, just milk (skim or low fat), whole oats (oatmeal) and whey protein powder. If you want to add some fat to it, just eat a spoonful of natty PB because it's much easier than trying to blend it in with the shake. Anyway, you can make some pretty good shakes with those ingredients. Cheap and effective. Often times for breakfast I'll make a shake that contains 1-1.5 scoops of oats, 1-2 scoops of whey and some milk.
Also, for breakfast you could just eat some eggs, 1 hefty slice of whole wheat toast, glass of milk and maybe a banana. Easy.
As far as your physique goes, just concentrate on gaining more mass. Make sure you're lifting heavy with good technique. The way you're built, you can have a good physique if you work towards it, you just need more mass so you'll look more muscular. Also, during your workouts or even at home, practice posing. Not only is this a form of isometric exercise, which can benefit your bodybuilding routine, but it'll make you look better in pictures, if you care. I'm not saying you didn't take good pictures, but the more you practice posing, the better you'll be able to show off what you have. I say this with absolutely no intention of ever competing.

Looking good bro. Make sure your getting plenty of protein, 1-1.5gm per pound of body weight. I really don't see any gyno issue there. Keep up the good work.
