Detailed Answer:

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

No, it does not work like that. Moreover, it would have much ill effect on your health and this is not proper way to loose weight. I recommend a dietician's consultation. To loose weight, firstly the cause needs to be identified since it can be hormonal also is many cases, which should be treated differently.

More than diet, exercise along with some dietary modification (not as stringent as your plan)is a good method should work.
