Myth or Fact?

Chocolate milk is a great post-workout recovery drink.


Low-fat chocolate milk has long been recommended as a simple and delicious source of the nutrients that can help your body recover from workouts. The caveat: it has to be dairy milk, which appears to have the optimal ratio of protein vs. carbs to help your body optimize recovery. A review of various studies into chocolate milk’s effect on workout recovery found that it had “either similar or superior results when compared to placebo or other recovery drinks.” NOTE: for most people, 1 cup (240 ml) is plenty.
