Thanks Sarah, was secretly hoping you might pop along with the science!

I appear to have a reputation...

.....a good one!

Wasn't there something in the press recently about the milk itself having something in it that helped with muscle soreness and recovery, or is that just down to the protein/carb ratios?

 

Edited to add, a quick google came up with this study: http://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/H08-057

Use the FRIJJ milk to make up your instant microwaved porridge, run for 3 hours, and finish off the rest of the FRIJJ when you get home. SIMPLES!

I usually neck a full pint of milk after my long runs. Semi skimmed or the 1% stuff. Usually drink full skimmed but don't fancy it after a run - it's just a bit too insubstantial. Don't know about the scientific explanations etc but to me milk feels like a great recovery drink. Sometimes add nesquik but suspect that may just be satisfying greedy sugar cravings rather than specifically helping with anything.

I like Asda's own brand choc fudge milk in little bottles for putting in my drop bags to get me round longer events. 50p a bottle and a comfortingly gloopy consistency. Yum!

The combination of protein and carbohydrates does have an effect on the uptake of nutrients into the cells - so adding a bit of Nesquik to milk isn't just about feeding cravings - it does actually do some good if you want to optimise the replenishment of muscle glycogen stores 

If you're exercising to lose weight, then it's another matter...

Just off to have a glass of chocolate milk.

I wonder if Cadburys Dairy Milk has the same effect.

So far, so good...

Hmm... I wonder if I could convince Cadburys to give me the funding to do the research?  They could pay me in chocolate...

That's not to say you can't have a Nesquik milkshake RWD - just ditch a few calories elsewhere to compensate

I seem to have become the forum's resident promoter of chocolate milk...

I don't mind sharing the blame.

It's been a while since I had one of these, actually...

I should probably point out that I don't like chocolate milk. I much prefer strawberry flavour

I tried chocolate yesterday and strawberry today (both post run)! I think strawberry is the winner, chocolate isn't terrible but strawberry is just that bit sweeter and therefore more refreshing!

I was sceptical as to whether this thread would get any response at all and yet its turning into a chocolate milk appreciation society!

Chocolate AND strawberry milk appreciation society

26/06/2012 at 12:24
Oh yes, how could I have missed that one?!

Banana milkshake has it's place also.

26/06/2012 at 13:20
Hmmm, not too sure about that one!

Nor me (I prefer strawberry) but equality to all fruits. 

Except papaya
