Maybe: You will only lose weight if you burn more calories than you take in.

Weight Loss: To lose weight you need to have small frequent meals and stay active. Try not to drink your calories. The diet you are talking about will only give you temporary results. If you make lifestyle changes you will have a healthier longer lasting outcome. Good Luck, it's a tough battle but you can do it
