The current issue of Food Technology magazine claims that tea, coffee and low-fat milk surpass sports drinks and enhanced waters when it comes to nutrition and workout recovery. Evidence suggests that physically active individuals who regularly consume tea experience accelerated body-fat reduction and increased endurance and recovery. Scientists also point out that coffee, the primary source of antioxidants in the US diet, is packed with polyphenols and actually has a higher antioxidant content than tea or fruit and vegetable juices. Milk is thought to aid in weight management and weight loss, accelerating the loss of body fat around the waistline.
