My plan is to have:

1. Ensure bottle the protein version(full of vitamins).
2. at least one glass of x brand of body building milkshake(they are avitamin powerhouse just read the labels).
3. Vegan Smart shake.
4. Omega from 3 to 9.
5. Random dinner.
6. Protein cereal bar.

I suffer from severe hunger so I indeed need to eat 6 times. I think overloading your system with pills can be a bad move so I will most likely buy natural stuff from health foods and if anyone knows the most important single supplement for bone regeneration let me know.

That was my concern. But for short  periods I guess it is OK. It is like taking medicine.
I am eating 3000-6000 calories everyday of food and multiple snacks so I do not think I need more protein from protein shakes etc.

6,000 calories? That's more than the generic 2,000 recommended for people of most heights. Does healing actually eat up the extra calories or are you storing them as fat?

According to a website, yes, 6000 calories is needed for a single bone fracture. But I think its not true in my case as most of it went to my body as fat.

i call BS on ItsMyLife claiming to double the speed of bone healing time via supplements, if that was true everyone would finish LL a good 3 months earlier by taking pills, but no one has done that so yeah.

if you eat 6.000 calories per day you will be fat like cow, because you sit all day in bad and that is too much calories even for persons who regulary go to gym.

Dr. Craig Robbins of the Paley Institute recommended the Bone Health Now supplements. Other than that, I've been taking collagen and a few other common supplements - Vitamin D and curcumin.

My diary. Tibias+femurs 3.75+3.75cm at the Paley Institute (5'5" -> 5'8") in my late 30s.
One of the last patients to use the PRECICE 2.2 nail. I met the first STRYDE patient and I strongly recommend the new STRYDE nail instead.

A good chunk of overkill, but good if you have the money. I used to do something similar and was ingesting close to 30+ pills a day. The problem is that your gastrointestinal tract can be thrown off by this amount of vits/mins. You are better served to have a rock solid diet that includes a lot of meat, veg, eggs, kefir/yogurt, all cooked in coconut oil supplemented with BCAA loaded Whey Protein and a casein protein, and the cheapie vitamins A/B/C/D/E/K + Calcium. Almost the entire list is covered by that. It just takes discipline, save the money you'd be spending having neon yellow piss and get a nutritionist to put you into 2-3 weeks of habit-forming practices.

Aside from maybe collagen and silicon, which does help the inflammation process of bone growth, or at least theoretically, it's all been replaced.

Also, you will come away as a much healthier individual, and not a walking pharmacy. This is what I used to be ingesting on a daily.
