Borden's Dutch Chocolate milk. If you've had it, you see all others to be inferior.

I've recently started dating a certified personal trainer/registered dietician and she's got me switched to chocolate milk for post workouts. I used whey for years w no real gains but I have seen a small size difference since being switched(2 months now). She gave me all the reasons why its so good for you but I can't remember. I'll try and get her to write something up tomorrow for you all

well, there are great arguments for/against drinking white milk which was pushed on the American public in the 30's and 40's. As we can see today, there is a great decline in the popularity of milk. We no longer see the "got milk" campaigns of late.

Chocolate milk is different, for some reason. I cannot explain why scientifically, however.

Your posts are consistently some of the least helpful on this forum.

What's the ideal chocolate milk? White milk with quick powder or something like the pre made gallons? I'm going to try this out for a bit.

Yikes, that's low bro. The one that I posted a picture of earlier has 16g, and the regular chocolate milk has 14g or something like that. I don't know if what I'm noticing is placebo or something legitimate, but I feel better on the Cookies & Cream flavored chocolate milk than I did on the BSN or ON whey.

I think you are referring to my PWO shake, the dark chocolate almond milk (made from almonds) contains no useable protein, but I put two scoops of double chocolate ON whey in to make up for it.

Plenty of simple sugars to spike insulin post workout, plus fast digesting whey.

For those wondering why chocolate milk is a great PWO drink, its because it contains complete casein proteins (slower digesting, think 8 hours compared to ~1 hour with whey) as well as lots of sugar to spike insulin (the most anabolic muscle building hormone in your body) It also contains Vitamins A & D... this is all off the top of my head, could be a couple smaller benefits.

In my opinion, the only difference in muscle growth an individual would see switching from a whey PWO shake (combined with simple carbs) to chocolate milk would be if they did not already have lots of slow digesting proteins in their stomach (eating a 50g+ protein laden meal of chicken/beef/etc 3-4 hours earlier). Whey when coupled with the slower digesting proteins from animals / casein is very effective at building muscle.

I believe a lot of people are just focused on getting whey protein in after the gym, and mix it with water / regular milk. Simple carbs are as important (I'd argue more important) as getting protein into your bloodstream. This is what makes chocolate milk effective, the combination of simple sugars + casein proteins.

You're right. My mistake

I'm sure that combination is just as effective. I purchase it after every workout because it's $1.50, it's convenient and the store is right next door to the gym. I no longer purchase whey for the reasons mentioned earlier, so I don't have any at home (..except for the stuff that my g/f used to pick up from her clinic, but it gives me far too much gas - and causes bloat for far too long - to be worth consuming).

makes sense. Probably just as cheap as what I'd be mixing. I have a 5lb tub of ON whey coming that was back ordered from cyber monday that I'll have to use.
