Perfect post workout meal...Chocolate Milk
Anyone ever heard this? Reading the evidence given, it makes perfect sense. Perfect 3:1 ratio of carbs to protein. Thoughts?

Here's a quote from IronManLive:
"Recover with low-fat chocolate milk or a milkshake. To optimize muscle recovery, sports scientists recommend consuming approximately a 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein, and replenishing lost fluids and electrolytes within 30 minutes after working out. However, many athletes do not feel hungry post workout, likely from the jarring effect weight-bearing activity has on the gastrointestinal system. Instead of choking down solids, treat yourself to a glass or two of low- or nonfat chocolate milk, which provides an optimal balance of carbohydrates for glycogen replenishment, protein and amino acids for muscle repair, as well as fluids and essential electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium) for optimal muscle rehydration"

4 to 1?! wow
im not saying it wont work.. but its definetely not opt...
why iso pro is much more effective do to its speedy absorbtion rate and blend of amino's and dextrose is by far the best bet for a glucose source.
05-27-2005, 11:55 AM #14
So, in your opinion, what would the optimal ratio be?

maybe 3;1 if its like sucrose or something not as effective as glucose.. but i would never jump up to 4:1... thats like 220+ grams of sugar for me ...

Hell, it's tastier and probably cheaper just to stick with a chocolate whey/dex shake rather than drink choc milk....
05-28-2005, 07:37 AM #19
Dex + whey... taste like choc. Cotton Candy in liq form ... you know..?
05-28-2005, 08:02 AM #20
