A lot of people have been advocating chocolate milk after a workout due to the carbs and the casein/whey blend in the milk but I was always told that milk after a workout is not good because it slows absorption of nutrients in your body which post workout is not ideal.
So why is chocolate milk better? Does the the sugar in milk help balance that out? Or is it good, but whey protein with water and something like gatorade is simply better? Im not claiming anything by the way, just curious.
