In brief: No

Nutrition today is quite complex.
Why? The food industry has made every form of artificial food whether it be protein, fat, or carbs; available to consumers. Try to eat fresh, natural-organic foods, usually a balance of 15-25 % protein, 15-25% fat, and 50-75 complex carb---fruits. And veggies not much breads, rice or starchy foods. Lots of water at least 2 liters a day.
