The Perfect Tonic To Stop Cravings, Manage Weight & Boost Energy

A little while ago, I was talking to someone who had been struggling with cravings for as long as he could remember.

During the day he followed a pretty decent diet, and he also worked out regularly, but every evening he would ruin all this — as well as his chances of finally losing weight — because of an irresistible longing for chips, cookies and other unhealthy snacks.

I often deal with cravings in my work as an orthomolecular nutritionist, and I advised him to try out this super-easy chia drink recipe:


  • 1/2 cup of purified water
  • 1/2 cup of coconut water
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. fruit juice, e.g. pineapple or blueberry
  • Juice of half a lime


In a blender, soak the chia seeds in coconut water for 15 minutes.

Add the fruit and lime juice and blend briefly.

Drink immediately.

Personally, I always make this drink about half an hour before working out, or to prevent the all-too-common afternoon slump.

My client promised he'd give it a try, and when I talked to him again a couple of weeks later he was totally thrilled!

He'd been using this drink two times daily and not only were his cravings completely gone, he also felt a lot fitter and had already lost a significant amount of weight.
