In brief: Depends

It depends on if you have any medical problems or not.
If you have not seen a doctor in a while it is usually a good idea. Also, it depends on the exercise program and type of diet you intend to start. Fad diets and some of the extreme diets that are around can be harmful. Moderation is usually the key.
