Swap Your Sports Drink for a Glass of Chocolate Milk
Feeling virtuous after a tough workout? Don’t sabotage your calorie burn during a workout with a sports drink; grab a glass of chocolate skim milk instead. A 2006 study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism found that drinking low-fat chocolate milk helped cyclists go 50 percent longer than those who drank sports drinks. This simple swap may help your body recover faster from a workout, which could lead to more exercise sessions (translation: more calories burned) more often.
