Let's discuss chocolate milk!

There have been many articles that have surfaced about the benefits of chocolate milk as a PWO alternative to protein shakes, gels, etc. I gave it a try yesterday, but the jury is still out. I'm going to implement chocolate milk for PWO for the next 30 days and document the results/affect. Let's hear your thoughts gentlemen.

I think it's pretty good but with half the protein as regular shakes I think it's inferior in that department. I'm not sure if the extra sugar does more than the extra protein of a regular shake would though so I can't really say what is "better". I think a whey shake in whole milk might be the best of both worlds.

I've never experienced any appreciable gains from whey protein drinks (..causing me to believe that it's a waste of money for me), so I'm wondering if I will fare better with chocolate milk. I felt really good this morning. "Supposedly" consuming the chocolate milk reduced PWO muscle soreness. When I left the gym yesterday, I WAS WRECKED. No soreness today.....at all!

Since I believe sugar does play a part in helping the break down of proteins I usually add a half cup of sugar to my protein shake just so it is sweet like chocolate milk would be.

I'm very much in the same boat as you but I drink them just to get the protein in quicker or when I need more. I really think my body composition would be the same if I stopped taking it though. I'm not quite sure why I keep spending $50 every few months. I guess it's not terrible.

half a cup? That seems like a lot.

I guess the insulin spike PWO is OK. Would never work for me though as I'm Lactose Intolerant.

I think its a great combo of protein + simple carbs for PWO... but I believe whey is still superior for PWO shakes.

My postworkout shake is 1.5 cups of this:



With 2 scoops of



it is the most delicious shake I've ever had, and packs fast dissolving 48g of protein and 35g of carbs, perfect for PWO.

There was a study that claimed that the body only needed approximately 12-16g of protein PWO to maximize recovery.

Interesting. I started doing this about two weeks ago. A friend of mine went to a Boise State Football camp for two weeks, and after every practice and workout they gave them these bottles of chocolate milk. I know he has been doing it for a year and shows good results. Only bad thing are the milk poops/farts, but that is expected.

That's a bad thing? I always thought of it as one of the plusses....

I'm hanging out with a new girl so my milk timing is very strategic.

Just realized I've got maybe 1-2 scoops of protein powder left. Maybe this is a good time to also hop on the chocolate milk bandwagon..
