Is it fine to just eat whenever I get hungry instead of eating on a schedule every day? I find it easier to just eat when I get hungry... I eat stuff like Toast, Carrots, Bananas, Eggs, and other healthy things. Also are Wheat Thins a good snack? Can regular whole grain Cheerios work as a meal?

If eating when hungry allows you to eat enough to gain weight, then sure.

Crackers are not a good snack.

I guess if you throw a bunch of milk in there Cheerios are a meal. A meal should definitely contain protein though.

Well, I want to make sure the weight I gain is muscle and not fat. And I want to see my abs eventually... Would Cheerios be bad for that?

If you can't see you abs now, and you're bulking, you're not going to be able to see them any time soon. You have to gain mass first (as much muscle as possible, but inevitably some fat as well) and then you can cut down to reveal those abs.

Cereal isn't the greatest source of carbs...it's a processed food. Then again, you probably live at home and most 16-year olds don't live off oats, yams, and legumes. If you're adamant about gaining muscle and not fat you need to start counting your calories...and as a result, you'll probably end up eating on a schedule too.

Well the problem with the eating schedule is that my day is hardly ever the same unless it is a school day... I don't know when I'll be home or when I wont be... I wake up at a different time everyday. And other factors like that... Another thing is that I gain weight really easily as I just lost about 90 pounds of fat.

If you put on weight easily, then you should definitely be counting calories.

I think I should be consuming 2015 calories according to my bodyweight times 13 since im an endomorph? Should I be bulking or cutting?

Bulking

I think you'll want more calories than that. Start at 15-16 x bodyweight and adjust from there.

You need to eat at least twice that much.

I added an extra potato and a serving of reduced fat wheat thins, what else can I add? It's at 1470 currently.

You don't even have to "add" foods if you don't want. Just double everything. Who even eats one piece of toast?

Eat the wheat thins if you like them. They're not going to hurt you.
