CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - If you like chocolate milk you could be in luck.
A new diet called "The Chocolate Milk Diet" claims to help you burn fat if you drink it at the right time of day.
One serving when you wake up, a second before you exercise, and a third just after your workout.
Here's the thinking: the calcium found in chocolate milk, can impede your body's ability to absorb fat.
An article in Men's Health Magazine states chocolate has naturally occurring electrolytes that actually keep you more hydrated than water and the 8 grams of protein you get in every 8 oz. glass is a perfect before and after a workout
John Scardino, the Director of Personal Training at the Peak Performance Center in Brecksville agrees. "It can be, there is some research out that show the macro nutrients the protein and carbs can help recovery so the next workout you do would be even better," said John Scardino.
