Haven't hit the gym in about 2 years. Had total reconstructive knee surgery and got lazy and frustrated because I can't run much or do any high impact types of activity that I used to do because I will be laid up for about 3 or 4 days after with a swollen and sore knee.
I currently weigh 255 lbs stand 6'3 and am 31 years old. Would like to get down to 210, 205 range.
I don't have limitless funds but what I was looking at starting with based on reviews, reading on this site and talking to some folks is this:
Recreate + OEP. Taking 1 of each 30 minutes prior to working out and then also the same later in the day. I have seen where some folks to 2 at a time but others say it helps stretch out how long you can use it by only taking 1 each.
Jackd3d as source of creatine.
Syntha6 Protein taken 2-3 times a day then Optimum Casein Protein at night.
My diet prior to this has not been clean....but I have no problem switching over...just had no motivation before and now trying to get back into it.
Any comments, suggestion or corrections would be appreciated.

At your current stage I would say supplements are the last thing you need...
The most important thing is to get everything squared away on the nutrition and workout front; make sure your workout routine is appropriate, run it for a few months, I would say at least 4, get back in the groove before even considering any supplement that is not a staple.
Perhaphs Fish Oils, BCAAs, Creatine, Protein Shakes, and a Multi for starters, but buying Recreate, at this point, to me would be kind of a waste.

That guys two cents are gold, good advice. Work on the routine and diet first with some good supps for recovery and overall health. Fish oils should be a staple to everyone's suppage and for some BCAA's I know this one http://www.athleticxtreme.com/arsenal/axcell/ tastes great and has some really good reviews. It has taurine too for some extra energy. Also the multi is extremely important if your dieting. I really think it's best to save up your money right now and wait those few months to have everything just right first.
now u got 4 cents.

What about some sort of appetite suppressant and/or some sort of stim supplement ? I run out of gas pretty early on in my work outs and feel like I eat way more than I should....would you recommend for or against anything like that ?

Well, if you feel that you need something extra it's nothing wrong with that. Being on a diet can sure have it's tull on the energy levels, so resorting to a Stim supplement could be a good alternative.
I would recommend that you try the new Stimulant-X with 1-MeTIQ,
Here's a link for a free sample package of it, just 0.99c for S&H:
