Three and one-half years after Sports Illustrated touted the benefits of chocolate milk to athletes, the accolades keep on coming.

"Chocolate milk is particularly beneficial for athletes that train more than once per day, as it is very effective for refueling your muscles, preventing cramps and maintaining high energy levels after your workout," registered dietitian and nutrition consultant Crystal Dow told the Richmond (British Columbia) News recently.

According to a study published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism several years ago (and reported in the March 6, 2006 Sports Illustrated), athletes who drank chocolate milk after a workout were able to exercise more intensely in a second workout than those who drank commercial sports beverages.
