No: You retained lot fluid. Best way to loose weight is not eat the food you are over consuming or do exercise to burn the same amount of calories.

Easy to gain: Adding additional calories to your diet increases the likelihood of gaining weight. Decreasing your calories by 1000 will help you to lose weight safely. Tracking your calories is an effective way to monitor your diet and lose unwanted pounds.
