#MissionApolo Will #BuildIt With Chocolate Milk!

Disclosure: The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK.

I told you a little last week about the benefits of recovering with low fat chocolate milk. Not only does it taste amazing but it has the right balance of protein and carbs for optimal recovery!


Low fat chocolate milk facts (read more about how low fat chocolate milk is backed by science HERE):
  • A natural source of high-quality protein to build lean muscle.
  • The right carb-to-protein ratio scientifically shown to refuel and rebuild exhausted muscles.
  • Vitamin A to support a healthy immune system and normal vision.
  • Electrolytes including calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium to help replenish what’s lost in sweat.
  • B vitamins for energy.
  • Fluids to rehydrate.
  • Calciumvitamin Dphosphorusprotein and potassium to build and maintain strong bones and help reduce the risk for stress fractures.
I make sure to recover after my long runs with a glass of low fat chocolate milk within 30 minutes of finishing my run. It tastes so good that I always feel like it's a treat when I'm drinking it!


Not only do I recover with low fat chocolate milk but so do many elite athletes! You may remember me telling you all about #MissionApolo where the speed skating champion Apolo Ohno and Women's Health editor Jen Ator have been training for the 2014 IRONMAN World Championship in Kona. They have been recovering with low fat chocolate milk for their entire training. Well...their day is almost here! Apolo and Jen will be conquering the IRONMAN THIS WEEKEND on Saturday, October 11th! I cannot wait to follow along!!!
