How much chocolate milk should I drink post-workout? Would it differ after a cardio workout and a weightlifting workout?

Chocolate milk is one of the best post workout drinks u can take. It has a good mix of simple carbs/protein and fat. Nothing wrong with drinking choc milk then eating ur meal...in fact, a lot of trainers recommend it.

On that note, I just drink a cup.

Man, you k!lled your argument at:

be my guest and have 4 glasses of choclate milk post workout instead of eating a healthy meal
How about 200ml of chocolate milk, as much water as you want/need and a healthy meal?

What you also might not know is that I posted a thread here a few days ago about the mental addiction I have to chocolate. Someone suggested a chocolate flavoured protein shake, but that costs a lot considering I forked out a lot on a massive tub of that n@sty ON Cookie & Cream stuff.

Its not that legit. Maybe you need to learn more about nutrtion. Choclate milk is not good for you. Just because something has carbs and protein does not mean it is good for you. If you come home and have a blaanced meal with a glass of water it will be 1000x Greater than drinking some ####ing choclate milk postworkout dip####. I mean your asking how much choclate milk you should have post workout. But hey if you enjoy adding n@sty generic chemicals to your body be my guest and have 4 glasses of choclate milk post workout instead of eating a healthy meal .
After a workout, you would want to replenish glycogen stores. The simple carbs in choc milk will do that for u. It also has a great ratio of carbs/protein/fats. U want more info, use google.

And why should somebody take advice from some lame a$s ni##a like yourself who only works the front desk of a gym? Lol, gtfo. Nobody is saying to drink a glass of chocolate milk over eating a meal u illiterate ####. But there's is absolutely nothing wrong with drinking a cup of chocolate milk before eating ur meal.

Post-Workout Drinks

When it's time to choose a liquid chug after a long, tough workout, there's a slew of options out there. Water? Gatorade, POWERade, or All Sport? Endurox R4? Physiologist Joel Stager, director of the Human Performance laboratory at Indiana University, has even one more potential workout recovery drink to add to the list: chocolate milk. His latest study, published in this month's International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, names this kids' favorite an optimal post-exercise recovery aid.

Before your stomach recoils, take a look at chocolate milk's ingredient list. For a high-endurance athlete, Stager's team sees it as a catch-all workout recovery drink. Compared to plain milk, water, or most sports drinks, it has double the carbohydrate and protein content, perfect for replenishing tired muscles. Its high water content replaces fluids lost as sweat, preventing dehydration. Plus it packs a nutritional bonus of calcium, and includes just a little sodium and sugar -- additives*that help recovering athletes retain water and regain energy.*

Drinking plain water after exercise replaces sweat losses -- and that's it. "Chocolate milk provides carbohydrate replenishment to your muscles -- something they can metabolize," said Jason Karp, MS, another researcher for this study. "There's nothing to metabolize in water."*

Stager's a$sessment of chocolate milk is even simpler. "It's water plus a whole lot more," he said.

The Case for Carbs

Ready to switch your bottled water for chocolate milk? a$sess your workout level first. Downing a post-workout beverage chock-full of carbohydrates isn't just for the weekend tennis player, said Stager -- and that's key. A drink like chocolate milk is most useful to a cyclist, swimmer, or long-distance runner. These sports stress high endurance levels and constant, sustained movement. Competing athletes need high levels of calories, carbs, and protein to sustain that level of performance.

Stager tested out chocolate milk's performance as a workout recovery drink on nine cyclists. In his lab, each athlete biked until exhaustion, and then rested for four hours. During this break, each consumed low-fat chocolate milk, Gatorade, or the high-carbohydrate sports drink Endurox R4. Afterward, they cycled to exhaustion again.

The results were positive. His research team concluded that the athletes who consumed chocolate milk performed just as well or better as those who drank the other beverages. The high carb and protein content in milk make it an incredibly effective recovery drink, Stager said -- even though it's never been marketed as one.

....But let's all listen to the guy that swipes people's cards at the front desk.

well what happens when you google it? the first search that wants to come up? "is chocolate milk good for you" ...then it goes on to list several sites and sources that back up the chocolate milk being healthy, and saying its good after workouts too.

the second search that wants to come up, "is chocolate milk good after a workout" boasts even more positive statistical information related to the topic.

the third search "is chocolate milk bad for you" comes up and can't seem to give a straight answer, and beats around the bush, coming back full circle saying that it's healthy for you again.

but youre right, its just google.

its a fact not a theory that raw milk is better for u but go with what they push in magazines.





Keep listening to those trainers though.
Your guy in the 2nd video says milk's bad because most cows carry disease and are injected with grow hormones. So wouldn't raw unpasteurized milk be the worst kind of milk to drink?? We pasteurize our milk for THAT very reason u rehtard.

You didn't answer the question...


BX is going to need video proof, pictures, witness testimonies and a "No Milk Needed" labeled paper taped on your shirt.

The clock is ticking.
