{August 17, 2008}   Muscle Milk, mmmmm.

One of the other products I really enjoy is Cytosport’s MUSCLE MILK. I have to honestly say, that until APEX came out with their workout shakes, this was hand’s down my favorite workout drink. I stock up on both now.

Muscle Milk is great during workouts, I feel like I maintain or sometimes even go above what I normally do without it. So it’s a nice boost without feeling weighed down. I actually drink a little before I start, a little during and then finish it off when I’m done. It doesn’t have that powdery texture that other workout shakes usually do and the!

I usually buy the pre-made shakes but that’s not to say that the powder form is not good, as well. I can do either. I just hate to clean the cups after, haha!  I can say that when I used Muscle Milk as my meal replacement, I felt full and satisfied until my next meal and maintained a nice pepped feeling.

The best part is, it comes in LIGHT and Regular formulas. So if you’re trying to ADD calories, it’s a great source but they haven’t forgotten us calorie counters!

Best ways to use Muscle Milk®

I challenge you to try the Muscle Milk because I think you’ll find that it’s a nice “treat” to reward your hard workouts. I even had a friend who I was helping to lose weight via internet tell me that he loved to have one at night when he came home from a long day. He works as an architecht so there were times he wouldn’t get to workout until really late and he’d drink a shake after as his “chocolate fix” for the day. It becomes something you look forward to instead of something you try to drink as fast as you can so you don’t taste it.
