Patient discussion about provider

Q. Does it provide me with good results and if so, how? I have been advised to take milk as a meal before practice. Does it provide me with good results and if so, how?

A. Unless and until an athlete has an allergy to milk or is lactose intolerant, there is no reason to avoid skim milk. These are an excellent source of both carbohydrate and protein with very little or no fat. Having 8 ounces of skim or 1% milk or yogurt up to 2 hours before a competitive event can even help boost blood sugar (forms of carbohydrate) for the early minutes of the competition. The protein will kick in with additional fuel a little later.
