Yes and No. You need energy to burn calories. Energy is what makes you active and what keeps your metabolism active. The more you move the more calories you burn. It's simple. For example if you eat 2,000 calories a day... but you are so active that you burn 600 extra calories a day... on top of your body's natural way of burning calories (even through sleep)you will lose weight.
