Science Says Chug a Chocolate Milk After Your Workout

Science Says Chug a Chocolate Milk After Your Workout

Imagine, if you will, that you're in the gym, working up a sweat lifting weights and taking on the treadmill with the tenacity of a roided-up super athlete. You finish your hour long grunt-a-thon and you feel quite parched. So you reach for your mystery bottle of thirst-quencher, squeeze the plastic casing and your tongue detects the rich, gooey taste of pure milk chocolate. No, this isn't some bizarre parallel universe that a coked-up Twilight Zone concocted. It's something science says you should do after every workout.

A new study by the University of Texas at Austin found that athletes who chug low-fat chocolate milk drinks after their workout not only improved their workout endurance, but they also built stronger muscles and reduced their body fat faster than those who just drank sports drinks. Another study from The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that cyclists who enjoyed a chocolate chug after their ride also had vastly improved oxygen uptake and cardiovascular fitness.

I'm sure this news is making the fat little kid in all of us long for the days of Chocolate Soldier once again.
