Chocolate milk and cycling

Exercise physiologist John Ivy, at the University of Texas at Austin, put a group of untrained men and women through the rigors of hard cycling for an hour a day, five days a week, for about a month. Immediately after each training session and again one hour later, the subjects drank either a cup of chocolate milk, a carbohydrate-only beverage with the same number of calories, or a placebo with no calories. At the end of the training period the chocolate milk drinkers lost more body fat and gained more lean muscle than the carb-only group.
