Answer:

Basic Supplementation:

Post workout shake: 40-50 grams of whey protein (this is essential); you
can throw in between 50-100 grams of dextrose and 5-10 grams of creatine
to spice it up, but the whey is essential.

Fish oil/EFA — 5-15 grams per day.

Joints (if necessary) — glucosamine, chondritin and MSM. 1-2 grams, 1-2 grams, and 2
grams per day are the upper limits. You can half that when feeling good.

Multi.

***Get this stuff in order and you should see some nice progression for a while.

    is it possible for the body to digest 40-50g of protein at once?

    http://bodybuildinglive.blogspot.com/2005/09/how-much-protein-do-i-need-day.htmlThat post will show you how to calculate how much protein you need a day. The 30g is a blanket statement that doesn’t apply to everybody. It’s possible to digest 40-50g of protein at once BUT that really depends on the above calculations.Normally, no, most people won’t digest that much.But saying nobody can, without punching in your own specs is not correct either.Highly unlikely that Olympic bodybuilding campions intake as much protein at once as the Average Joe.Right?Give the podcast above a good listen. And read the steps. You’ll get a better idea.
