For those who are scratching their head - no, it is not the same, not at all. In fact if you are skinny but not muscular you are most likely going to end up fat again.
Most people go through many cycles of yo-yo dieting and end up losing some muscle mass every time they get their weight down but gain it all back as fat when their willpower runs out as it always does.
This is not just an issue of exercising enough. It is an issue of keeping carbs low for most overweight people because carbs trigger an insulin response in our body and higher insulin levels will lead to our body storing calories as fat rather than using them to burn in the muscles or to build muscles.
It's that simple, really.
