8:20 am
a protein shake or banana. their choice? chocolate milk. >> helps us recover. when we're training up to 20 hours a week. >> low-fat chocolate mill sk really the gold standard. it's got all the nutrients that the body burns through in training. >> reporter: clint, cornell's coordinator for sports nutrition came up with the idea when he saw athletes undereating during the day, training hard, and overeating at night. >> getting good nutrition around training is critical. the recovery window starts within 30 minutes of training. it continues for 24 to 48 hours. the body needs nutrients throughout the day to repair optimally. >> reporter: here's why some say chocolate milk is a great recovery aid for certain people. research shows the protein from the milk rebuilds muscle. the water rehydrates. the sugar and carbs replaces glycogen. that was burned as energy. plus, young athletes like the taste. is it good for all of us? we asked michelle from yahoo! health. >> chocolate milk is a great recovery drink if you're an endurance athlete working out

8:22 am
mine would be darker. you pour it in. the sponge is your muscle. watch what happens to the sponge. >> and i asked dr. jen, why chocolate? what about the sugar in chocolate? >> a lot of the chocolate milk secret has to do with the fact that it tastes good. the palatibility. you're more likely to actually drink it. but look what's happening to the muscle. this is the glycogen storage getting repleted. with the combination of the sugar, the carbs, and the protein. and you need that. >> right. >> don't worry about the calories. what should we tell people? >> listen, sugar is not all bad and all good. your body needs sugar when you're working out. this is not just for the elite athlete. if you want to feel good with your workouts, you should start treating yourself as an elite athlete. a couple of tips. the power hour. get this in in the first 30 minutes, ideally within the first hour. eight ounces. not more. low-fat chocolate milk. and if you're lactose
