No, not really. This is a fundamental misconception. Weight loss is about NOT doing something--refraining from eating. Refraining from the habits underlying overeating.

It is not a problem in which taking something additional or taking a different food is going to fundamentally address the problems.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
