The people at Eat This Not That are recommending the chocolate milk diet.
Don’t worry it’s not really a diet but rather a recommendation to drink three glasses of chocolate milk a day for weight loss.
I found this intriguing because I don’t drink any milk and I love chocolate milk and could probably swallow. Or better yet, I wonder if chocolate soy milk has the same effect?
Their reasoning is chocolate milk has calcium, vitamin D, ample protein, and boosts your endurance. Their recommendation is to drink a glass of chocolate milk before you exercise for endurance and to drink a glass of chocolate milk after exercise to replace electrolytes. And then to drink a third glass when you wake up which is presumably before you exercise.
They don’t recommend fat-free chocolate milk because vitamin D needs fat in order to be absorbed but rather low fat or 1%.
