In brief: No

it isn't about a particular thing TO eat.
.. it's about avoiding things that are making you fat. Diet diary or not eating for 1-2 meals will induce the triggers that run what you eat. They tend to be in categories internal (emotions) external (cues) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1775472781/1708440999?token=378a5145 gives many details on this.
