This mixture, because it is consumed by many people adept at healthy eating, ends up generating a big question: “Does it lose weight?”.

The truth is that simply drinking water with lemon every day in the morning on an empty stomach or not, does not promote any weight loss if the practice is not associated with a change in eating habits in general.
Therefore, despite being natural and healthy, this mixture can only be an adjunct to weight loss. What will really lose weight are all the other dietary practices practiced during the day, such as the exclusion of processed foods and the option for more natural and minimally processed foods.
