Dear Nabz
The mixture of warm water, honey and lemon juice does not really promote weightloss, but the lemon juice will provide some vitamin C if the water is not too hot. Remember to rinse your teeth with clean water or to brush them as both the lemon juice and the honey can affect tooth enamel.
To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 or more minutes a day. While you are on the ‘Weight loss’ site, read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by surfing on this site.
