In brief: Not necessarily

You need to restrict caloric intake and exercise to burn more calories to lose weight.
Low carbohydrate diet is marginally better, but you can gain weight on a low carbohydrate diet if you eat fats and proteins in an amount that more than makes up for the carbohydrate deficit.
