Low-Fat Chocolate Milk: An Underrated Post Workout Drink

Filed in Food, General, Nutrition, Uncategorized by on 01/09/2013 Comments • views: 4303

With the onslaught of blue, yellow and multicolored sports drinks, many of which contain high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and artificial colors, there is one nutritious post workout drink that has flown below the radar. Low-fat chocolate milk. For years I’ve consumed low-fat chocolate milk to refuel my body after a Body Under Construction Fitness Adventure workout. I prefer it to many sports drinks because it contains:

• Protein- for muscle growth and repair
• Vitamin D- for strong bones
• A solid carb to protein ratio
• Essential fluids and electrolytes including calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium

Consuming the organic version will help you to avoid many of the artificial ingredients contained in sports drinks that can contribute to weight gain and conceal your six-pack. So, drink low-fat chocolate milk after a tough workout. It refuels your body and taste great too!
