Help with workout, diet, progress

Hey there, been lifting now for 6 weeks. Been using mostly machines for weights however am now wanting to move onto free weight as i realise the gains from machines really suck. Ive made some gains but not great tho. I go to Fitness First gym.

Heres the workout ive been doing for past 6 weeks.

DAY 1
Chest press, 3x8, 56kg
Shoulder press, 3x8, 35kg
DB shrugs, 3x8, 17.5kg per db
Incline chest press, 3x8, 49kg
Lateral raisers, 3x8, 40kg
Iso-lateral horizontal bench press, 3x8, 40kg

DAY 2
Horizontal leg press, 3x10, 61kg
Tricep pushdowns, 3x8, 40kg
Leg extensions, 3x10, 42kg
Assisted tricep dips, 3x8, 25kg
Calf raisers, 3x10, 79kg
Tricep pushdowns, 3x8, 55kg
Leg curls, 3x10, 40kg

DAY 3
Lat pulldowns, 3x8, 49kg
Alternate db curls, 3x8, 10kg per db
Seated row, 3x8, 49kg
Reverse cable curls, 3x8 25kg
Iso-lateral row, 3x8, 60kg
Hammer curls, 3x8, 10kg per db

The past two weeks ive been taking 25g of Reflex Natural whey straight after my workouts. Tried whey before (Dymatize Elite whey) however became ill from it, or so it seemed. Dont feel great since taking whey again, have slight stomach pains. Tried 50g post workout when i stared on Reflex but didnt go down well with my stomach so i cut it down to 25g.

Heres pics of me before lifting a single weight and after 6 weeks of the above training.
BEFORE
AFTER 6 WEEKS

My diet has been no different than usual. By that i mean the same as before i started lifting, not great.

What im wanting to know is......
1. Why does 2 brands of whey not go down well with my stomach?
2. What do you think to progress if any?
3. What looks laging parts, well all laggin i guess?
4. What routine would you reccommend me doing?

Anything else you want to add feel free

    ok mate
    1, try a few brands, are they with milk or water? extreme is a good one on the stomach i find
    2, progress, steady, 6 weeks IMO is a very short period of time, gains can be made but to really get the weight up, a length stay in BBing is required
    3, all over mate, keep chipping away and reading, eating and finding what works for you
    4 cashmans routine is fine (at top of forum)

    IMO its the diet that needs looking at, without correct fuelling, you simply wont grow, regardless of gym work
    IMO the schedule needs changing to have a more structured apporach

    good luck

    Thanks. The whey ive been taking has been in water. Yer i need to get diet, workout etc sorted out as you stated. Am finding it hard like with uni and playing sports 4 times a week usually. But will try. What should my basic days diet look like. Considering that im 6ft 5" and 196lbs, trying to bulk up?

    EDIT: Ive just found the article you wrote about diets .......TOXICS DIET ARTICLE so i presume this should be ok for me then. Thanks once again for help.
