Anonymous, a Men's Health Staff and Full Member of http://www.menshealth.com.ph states that:
‘The main reason milk is a good after-workout (or before if you like milk-burp like a baby ) drink is that it is 80% whey and 20% casein. So you get good amounts of fast and slow proteins to replenish your body.
People who train and those watching their waists prefer low fat because it cuts calories. Skim also lowers cholesterol (better than whole, but whole still lowers triglycerides).
But (and here's one of those controversial issues again, so read and take from it what you will): Researchers in Texas found that drinking whole milk after lifting weights boosts muscle protein synthesis 2.8 times more than skim milk. So if you're thin and bulking up, brave the farts and drink whole milk after lifting.’
Very interesting stuff – What do you think?
