Whole milk after workouts?

Post by Mini mahouse » Sat Oct 09, 2010 8:02 am

Hey , I often drink 1 liter of whole milk after workouts .
I thought it was good for me , since I am bulking , and whole milk has loads of protein and carbs , thougt that was good after workout .

But now I was told that whole milk is not good after workout because it has so much fat , that slows down the digestion ?

What is your guys opinion , milk good or bad after workouts ?

If you can stomach it, it is almost a perfect post-training drink. Add some chocolate syrup to give you a few simple sugars and you just might have the perfect post- training meal.

The speed of uptake is overrated. That's marketing hype by the supplement companies. You need carbs for glycogen replacement, protein to build muscle and saturated fat for the testosterone boost. Whole milk has all the nutrients needed to build muscle. Testing has been done on 2% chocolate milk and it works fine. There's no reason white whole milk wouldn't work at least as good.

Testing has also been done with skim milk.

Try whichever you like and see how it works. Go with what works best for you.

Stronglifts looks at it in detail. However, the article he uses to justify full fat milk actually looked at low fat milk. In any case, this is his key point:
So which milk you should drink post workout depends on your caloric needs for fat loss, which depend on your body-weight most.
