Very interesting discussion! It might be worth plugging in both to the nutrition tracker to see what the carb/protein difference is...

Just a thought!

one of the first ingredients second only to milk, is sugar in the chocolate milk I have at home, so the many of the carbs in chocolate milk come (more than likely) mostly from good old fashion sugar.

Gail - that was my exact thinking - or are the carbs from the lactose and not necessarily the chocolate?

I would guess that it's okay but I do wonder...

since chocolate milk is said to have a ratio close to 4:1 carb/protein would the sugar free through that ratio off. 4:1 being perfect for runners.

Not that it would create a big problem if it did.

I drink either organic low fat or soy chocolate milk...I like the individual servings because I can either freeze it and have it still icy after a long run or I can take in on the road since it doesn't need to be refrigerated!!!

I think that would be OK, because you are still getting the carbs and protein from the milk...I know for certain low-fat is just fine...lessens the amount of sat fat that you are getting.

Quick Question - when refueling after your workout with chocolate milk is the kind that is no sugar added/sugar free OK to use? And low fat OK too?

Thanks!
