Choclate Milk is Thirst-Ade...

For that deep down body thirst...(sorry I used to watch to much television)

Today's Pohla Smith of the P-G reports that researchers at the Indiana University at Bloomington have determined that chocolate milk is as good or better than Gatorade for nutritional fluid replacement.

Bodies fatigued by exercise simultaneously need and can not get enough calorie replacement because the body is too tired to eat. Sports drinks seek to replace nutrients that the body loses during a strenuous workout.

The one potential drawback to chocolate milk is its higher calorie count, but in addition to the nutrients found in Gatorade, the milk has high protein, calcium, riboflavin, and vitamin D.

Somehow the ideam of it does not seem as refreshing -- and possibly even a little nasty until I've had a shower.
