I agree food is much better than supps, but for a beginner I would suggest some whey and creatine.

You better get a Costco or Sam's Club membership, otherwise your gonna go broke.
i dozen eggs, 1 can tuna wow thats kool. Are you married i mean a married person or who have girlfriend can digest that much eggs lmao. Keep rocking bro best of luck

Food is exponentially more beneficial than supps. Get a solid diet down first then worry about supplementing diet and training.

If I was you I would determine what my goals are fist.

Are you trying to gain lots of muscle?

Are you looking to gain strength without a lot of extra body mass?

Are you shooting to looked ripped at your current weight?

I'm going to take a guess and assume you want to gain muscle. For that case, you will need to eat ton's of protien whereever you can find it. Meat,Eggs,Penut Buttter etc....

Taking into to account you are 5'8" and 140 you probably have a fast metablolism. This means you will need to eat even more.

The good news is that if you train hard in the gym your appetite will naturally increase. I would invest in Multi-Vitamines, Protien Powder and Creatin for pre and post work outs. As you get more sophisticated in your training you can start adding more supplements.

Try to keep your motivation up and your training intense. You will naturally see results.

Hope this helps.

The best supps to get on for beginner are a protein and a pre-workout. Protein and pre-workout can increase your strength and mass over time. If looking for increase muscle mass take about a 1g of protein per body pound per day. Noxipro and ON gold standard are good products to start with.
