In brief: Not necessarily
Weight loss depends on how many calories are taken in versus how many are burnt.
The latter depends on both level of activity and metabolism (how efficiently one burns up calories). Some large people have low metabolism. Safe ways to increase metabolism are to become more active, build muscles by weight training and caffeine in moderation.
