We’re excited to announce that the REFUEL | “got chocolate milk?” campaign will be joining us again this year for FitBloggin’13!
Science supports what elite athletes have known for years: Chocolate milk is an ideal choice after a workout. The world class team of athletes behind the REFUEL | got chocolate milk? Campaign knows that the nutrient profile of chocolate milk is what makes it so effective as a post-exercise recovery beverage.
It’s a natural source of high-quality protein to build lean muscle
It has the right mix of protein and carbs to refuel and rebuild exhausted muscles
It has fluids and is a natural source of electrolytes – like calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium – to rehydrate and help replenish what’s lost in sweat
Team REFUEL and Wendy Bazilian, DrPH, MA, RD will be at FitBloggin’ this year to discuss the latest post-exercise recovery nutrition science surrounding lowfat chocolate milk. Dr. Bazilian will also offer expert insights and tips that can help you recover and rebound faster for your next workout or race.
