Milk is a food with high nutritional value. Research shows that dairy consumption has a good effect on the body. Each liter of milk contains about 32 g of protein, including casein (about 80%) and whey protein (about 20%). They are high quality proteins containing all essential amino acids. This paper analyzed the effects of milk protein nutritional beverage on energy intake and anti-fatigue after exercise. No differences in appetite and energy intake between MPB and CB were found in the subjects. However, after exercise, some subjects drank MPB and their energy intake was significantly lower than that of CB. Studies have shown that milk protein-rich beverages can change dietary habits by increasing awareness of dietary behavior and controlling satiety, reducing energy intake, compared with carbohydrate beverages. Existing data can only partly reveal the effects of milk protein drinks on energy intake and satiety after exercise, but there are no clear and relevant physiological pathways.
