What is the best home made recovery drink ?
Quote | Reply
I am training MAF ( Maffetone = 180 less age adjusted for fitness is target heart rate ) and am looking for a recovery drink which is high in protein ( please no raw egg ) and lowish in carbs which I can make at home using standard foods.

I would appreciate all answers and points of view.

Thanks

Isn't the point of the recovery drink to replenish glycogen(Carbs)? Why skimp out on them?

there is no need to take protein if you aren't taking carbs. Carbs first, protein second if you want to recover.

why do you think cell tech works so well for body builders? Look at all those carbs

What you want is a 3:1 ratio of carbs to protein.

I find it's just easier to use something like Hammer Nutrition Recoverite. It has everything you need, and can be mixed up and drank right after your workout. Then you can take your time getting a 'real' meal together.

Yep! chocolate milk can do the trick....but that's got carbs. BTW, carbs are the primary concern in your recovery drink...however if you are hoping to drop some bodyfat and are keeping carbs low, then I suggest that you use what I use. Whey Protein Concentrate in skim milk. The milk adds a small amount of carbs but not too much.

I really don't think carbs are the be-all and end-all.

Your body doesn't "need" carbs to survive. You can take in fat and protein and surely but slowly, through gluconeogenesis, you will be able to resynthesize muscular glycogen stores.

If he's training Maffetone method, once per day, and for durations less than 90 minutes, he does not need much carbohydrate. I got lots of success by avoiding too much carb post workout. I usually go with 15-20 grams of carbs and 40 grams of protein during that method.

Of course, your individual mileage may vary. If you're training twice a day and with intensity, you will need to up the carb intake, but for the Maffetone method, I don't think you need much, especially if you are limiting yourself to once a day, 90mins maximum training.

A good beer or chocolate milk

beer actually has a good carb balance but not much in the way of protein.

chocolate milk mixed with some protein is a nice balanced recovery along with some fruit (banana, strawberry, etc.)

Bingo!

Carnation Instant Breakfast(in milk) or Chocolate Milk was always a favorite of mine and I have seen some studies that would back that up.

Carbs
are key

Chocolate Milk works great for me. That and a banana will get me till my breakfast....usually instant low sugar oatmeal. I have tried taking a huge protein shake and even eating a big breakfast but no matter what I east I'm always hungry between 9:30 and 10am.....So I figured why take in all those calories from a manufactured shake/big breakfast when I can get the same results from chocolate milk and a banana and spread my calorie intake over the day instead of blowing it at breakfast just to be hungry again a few hours later. I was able to drop a few pounds and still have the same energy levels.

Actually your body does need carbs. If you had a zero carb diet, your body would be hurting.

while working with a sports nutritionist, she wanted me on a little higher protein so had me switch from chocolate milk to a smoothie with whey protein and fruit. Easy to adjust to whatever ration you need.

but one problem: adult humans are not in any way adapted to drink milk. and many studies point to the fact that cow's milk from organic cows or from factory-farmed, hormone and antibiotic-laden cows is not at all healthy for people.

Yeah, there is some research that says that, some that goes against it. I think a lot of that has to do with what your ethnic background is, there is major genetics difference in how people deal with cow or any animal milk for that matter.

For those who have an issue with milk, soy milk has tested pretty much the same in the studies that have looked at chocolate milk.

Personal I like Horizons chocolate milk with some glutemine added to it.

Muscle milk is good they were handing out @ Nautica NYC for free I got like 20 bottles from the girl there. That being said I would not pay 3.00 a botttle for it though. I would just drink Chocalate milk.
