Quick Tip Tuesday: Post Workout Milk

milk

Yes, I said MILK! Drinking chocolate milk after an intense workout may sound gross- it’s not- but it replenishes what was lost during the workout.

Carbohydrates in milk help boost energy because physical exercise depletes the body’s glycogen stores. Glycogen is the storage form of glucose- which feeds your brain and nervous system.

There’s quite a bit of water in milk, so it can help hydrate.

Also, there are electrolytes in milk- so skip the sports drink.

Why chocolate? If you have to ask, we can’t be friends.
