Weight loss: It's recommended that you eat at least 1200 calories per day or more depending on your height and weight. Drinking water is great and adding a little lemon is better. I would recommend you follow up with your physician.

No: Water alone will not cause weight loss. Try a 1200 cal balanced healthy diet and regular exercise to loose weight, You need to burn off 3500 more caories than you take in to loose weight.
