This month's Runner's World had an article about natural drinks that are healthy, recharge muscles, and aid performance ("Natural Solution" by Matthew G. Kaday, M.Sc, R.D., Pgs 38-39). One of drinks discussed in the article is chocolate milk. According to the article chocolate milk is an ideal post-run drink because it has an ideal amount of carbs and protein that muscles need for recovery.
I have a mild case of lactose intolerance and drinking milk (regular or chocolate) does not agree with me. So my question is this, does chocolate soy milk have the same nutritional make-up as regular chocolate milk thus making it the same nutrient-rich recovery drink as regular chocolate milk?
Please chime in.
