Which is a Good Health Drink After Workout : Protein Shake or Chocolate Milk

Workout Tips for Beginners

protein shake vs chocolate milk: Before we discuss on protein shakes, let us first understand the protein. It is one of the main constituent of our diet which is necessary for the development of our body and for repairing of the tissues. Its deficiency causes problems like weakness, retarded development, nervous weakness etc. If it is in excess then also it is harmful and one would suffer with the problems of liver and kidney, uric acid stores in joints leading to gout and rheumatoid. It contaminates the blood arteries and veins, which ultimately gets blocked with waste deposits leading to high blood pressure.

Amino acids are the constituents of proteins. There are about 80 types of amino acid out of which 20 are essential for human metabolism or for growth and development some of them are formed in the liver and others are called essential amino acids which we get from our daily diet.

The amino acids required are arginine, cysteine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenyl alanine, threonine, tryptophan, tyrosine and valine.

These amino acids are provided by different food items like cereals, pulses, leafy vegetables etc.


❒ Health and Fitness Tip 1 Whey Protein or Protein Shakes

health and fitness tip

Milk contains proteins and minerals, in protein it consists of two types of proteins, casein and whey. Whey protein can be separated from the casein in milk very easily. It is the by-product of cheese making. When cheese is prepared from the milk the liquid over the cheese is Whey protein. It is considered a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids. It is low in lactose content. Whey protein consists of beta-lactoglobulin, alpha lactalbumin, bovine serum albumin, and immunoglobins.

It is also used to overturn weight loss in people due to HIV and also overcome allergic conditions in infants.

Whey protein/protein shakes or any other post work out energy drink consumption has high benefits because it is required for rehydration in the body, recoverybuilding muscles and improved performances. Many more new products are being developed which would help in increasing the strength.

Let us understand which would be better Protein shake or a chocolate shake

❒ Health and Fitness Tip 3 Rehydration

health and fitness tip

After the exercises particularly anything stamina based, whether it’s an intense workout at the gym, a long run, a Zumba class, Tennis, etc. rehydrating the body is important especially by doing so with essential nutrients lost through what one sweats out. Milk- whether low fat, skim, and even some other milks like almond, chocolate have a great supply of electrolytes such as sodium and potassium among some smaller amounts of other trace minerals which are lost through sweat.

Besides these elements, milk also contains good amounts of calcium and vitamin D that other sports drinks do not contain. One more benefit the milk has, it takes long time for its digestion so the nutrients get absorbed much more slowly.



❒ Health and Fitness Tip 4 Recovery

health and fitness tip

From many studies it has been revealed that the importance of a naturally occurring protein and carbohydrates benefit on one’s post-workout regime. Proteins are required to recover the wear and tear of the muscles and the energy is restored from carbohydrates.

Chocolate milk is a good source for both carbohydrates and protein. In fact, the necessary amount we burn on an average workout can be recovered with the 4:1 carbohydrate: protein ratio that is found in chocolate milk. Our bodies only need so much protein a day and on average, most of us over consume protein as there is protein in many foods one may even not realize. This is why chocolate milk’s ratio of 4:1 replenishes what has been burnt by one without making body to do extra work to get rid of the excess protein which one consumes post workout.  


❒ Health and Fitness Tip 5 Building Muscles

health and fitness tip

Since childhood one is always told to drink milk to grow big and strong and milk truly does more than just help muscles to recover. From many studies it has been found that more muscle building occurs when greater fat is lost during work out, if chocolate milk is consumed after a workout.

During work out, the muscles go through aerobic and anaerobic respiration, which is a good way to burn the excess muscle storage. Our muscles have stored sugar; called that glycogen, which gets burnt out in workouts. The carbohydrate from the chocolate milk is refilled within the muscles by drinking chocolate milk.


❒ Health and Fitness Tip 6 Improved Performances

health and fitness tip

In a study after the workout, few drank chocolate milk, few drank Gatorade, and the last third drank a brand of protein shake. The people, who drank chocolate milk containing carbohydrates to protein ratio 4:1, were able to do workouts 50% longer than the one who drank the protein shake. The protein shakes contain the same ratio of carbohydrates to protein 1:1.


❒ Health and Fitness Tip 7 Side effects

health and fitness tip

Protein shakes, also leads to some side effects like- stomach pains, cramps, reduced appetite, nausea, headache, fatigue, acne etc. If allergic to milk may be specifically allergic to whey. This usually happens if whey protein is taken in high doses.

Due to his diligence, some of Australia’s most mouth-watering fondants, hard centers, jellies and gingers coated with the finest chocolate were formulated.

Secrets of the Chocolate House by Paula Brackston
Secrets of the Chocolate House (Found Things #2) - Paula Brackston

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I had a great time with this book! After enjoying the first book in this series, The Little Shop of Found Things, I was really excited to see what would happen next in Xanthe's life. I went into the book hoping that I would like it as much as I did the first book and I did. This was a story that was able to grab me from the very beginning and was enjoyable until the end. I am so glad that I made the choice to give this series a try.

Xanthe is able to move through time. She runs an antique shop with her mother in the present time and when she finds certain items, they call to her. Sometimes these items are connected with an event and Xanthe has the ability to go to that time to make things right. When she finds a chocolate pot, she has a vision of Samuel and he is in trouble. She goes back to Samuel's time, the 17th century, to try to help him and find things have become very complicated.

I loved the fact that in this book we learn more about the act of time traveling, or spinning. I have a feeling that we are only at the beginning of learning all about what Xanthe can really do. There were some great characters introduced in this installment and I enjoyed seeing Xanthe interact with the mistress of the chocolate house. I also really liked the fact that Xanthe bounces around in time a bit during the story so we get a pretty clear picture of what is going on in both time periods. She has quite a few challenges to overcome in both time periods. 

I thought that Marisa Calin did a fabulous job with the narration. I loved how consistent the voices that she uses have been throughout the series. Each character has a very distinct sound and I thought that she added a lot of life to the characters. The way she reads the story adds a lot of emotion and excitement to it. I think that I might have enjoyed this book just a bit more because of her narration.

I would recommend this book to others. I do recommend reading this series in order if at all possible since the relationships between the characters do change over time. I had a great time journey through time with Xanthe and look forward to her future adventures.

I received a digital review copy of this book from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley and borrowed a copy of the audiobook from my local library via Overdrive.

Initial Thoughts
What a wonderful story! I had such a good time with Xanthe as she traveled back and forth in time trying to set things in the past right. It was really interesting to learn more about her particular brand of time travel and I enjoyed watching her juggle the demands of the past along with those in her own time. I listened to the audiobook and thought that the narrator did a fantastic job with this story. I can't wait to see what will happen next in this series.
