Did you know that chocolate milk is not only good for your taste buds but is also one of the best post-workout recovery drinks out there? Forget protein powers and spending your life savings at GNC, when it comes to helping out your workout fatigued muscles (and your wallet) chocolate milk is the way to go.
This, however, does not give you carte blanche to go guzzle Nesquick by the gallon, disregard water, or treat yourself after every slow walk on the treadmill. Keep your servings small (think elementary school cafeteria size) and lowfat or skim. Also, make sure it’s real milk and not just a dairy-like beverage. (If it doesn’t have to be refridgerated, stay away. Far, far, away.) Also, drink plenty of water to replenish your fluids. Although we’d all like to think otherwise, one can not live on chocolate alone.
