Try a normal healthy diet unless you are an athlete you don't need supplements. Search function will also be of use.

Even athletes don't need supplements, unless they're top 1 or 2% material. It's principally a transfer of cash from people who want to buy fitness across to the leisure industry.

Do you mean supplements that are acceptable by military standards?
Yes I've been told that some brands are not allowed? So a list of the brands that are accepted would be good. Also its pretty hard to get enough protein in on a busy day also bcaa's etc in some supplement shakes are needed in your diet it's just easier and cheaper than getting everything you need from food

No supplements are more expensive than food, often have things in that your body can't store and so you're flushing them down the pan.
You need a good healthy, balanced diet and that's it. If you find you aren't maintaining weight - eat more food.

Supplement brands that are not allowed include Ketamine, heron, cocaine, crystal meth and those flying saucer sweets that fizz in your mouth.

If you are eating a healthy balanced diet you do not need supplements. Therefore buying and consuming supplements will cost you extra money and energy so they are not easier and cheaper than getting everything you need from food. Adolf Hitler believed in supplements. Genghis Kahn did not.

You only need great amounts of protein when you're bulking. If you're trying to maintain then you reduce the amounts you need because you're not using as much energy. I fell for the whole 'protein shakes are just a cheaper way of getting what you need' but think about it. Cavemen didn't have them and they went around slapping dinosaurs

No you need to balance with carbohydrate, see the link I posted.

There is always time in basic training for food and plenty of options for protein. No need for supplements in basic.
