No! You need to track your food intake and exercise to see how many calories are going in and out.Use the app Cronometer for a few days. Then you can track all of your food/drink to see if you need to eat fewer calories (much easier) or burn more. Make certain scales weigh the same. Healthiest goal is to get to a BMI of 25 to live longest & spend less time disabled by stroke/heart problems.
