amazing drink is none other than.....
Believe it or not, but chocolate milk contains an optimal carbohydrate to protein ratio. This
ratio is critical for helping refuel tired muscles after strenuous exercise and can enable athletes to possibly exercise at
higher intensities in subsequent workouts.
There are a plethora
of protein/sports drinks to choose from but these findings may suggest, regular chocolate milk can be just as advantageous
for recovery from glycogen depleting exercise compared to their high priced counterparts.
Muscles can only get bigger and stronger when there is sufficient glycogen in the muscles themselves to produce adenosine
triphosphate(ATP). This is the chemical in your body that allows your muscles to contract. From a workout stand point this
speaks volumes in terms of getting optimal results. If muscles are prevented from contracting your workouts will suffer greatly.
After a hard workout your muscles crave glycogen. There is a window of opportunity which
is estimated to be 1-2hrs after a workout session to consume carbohydrates.
body releases the hormone insulin in the presence of carbohydrates. Insulin will do one of two things: shove the digested
carbohydrates molecule into a muscle cell for latter use as energy or it can cram the molecule into a fat cell. If we
continue to eat an excess of carbohydrates but never empty our glycogen stores then the carbohydrates will be stored as fat.
This is one of the reasons why people who embark on an exercise
program seem to be able to eat more food and at the same time store less fat. When drinking chocolate milk, immediately after
a workout, insulin will shuttle both carbohydrates and protein into your starving muscles. Just take a look at the money you
Popular sports drink = $3.00 per serving
1 gallon of milk = $3.50, 128 ounces = 16 ounces = 1 serving = 8 servings per gallon
Nesquik powder/syrup $4.95, 15 oz = 37 servings = 1 serving = 2 tablespoons
$8.95 for 8 servings of chocolate milk vs. $24 for 8 servings of sports drink
have at least 29 servings of Nesquik left over!
Studies suggest that including
24 oz. of fat free or low fat milk every 24 hours as part of a reduced-calorie diet may help people lose more weight and burn
more fat than cutting calories alone.
Folks the big companies can
make any sports supplement sound incredible, even chocolate milk!
There is no magic bullet.... just hard
work (exercise) and a sensible diet plan.
I drink protein shakes for variety, accessibility, protein and
added calories. I don’t drink them because I think they will improve my performance or give me the body I always wanted.
In the ever growing world of fad workouts, and bogus nutrition plans, the health conscientious
person is often left bewildered and confused.
Use common sense and sound judgment. Don’t be fooled
into thinking product A will solve your fitness problems.
Nothing compares to exercise and a balanced diet!!!!
