No, being in a calorie surplus makes you add weight.

To be in a calorie surplus means you are consuming more calories (energy in) than your body burns (energy out) in a day.

Simply put, you are eating more food than you need.
So why do doctors frown at night time feeding?

There are a few reasons.

Many people who eat at night are not really tracking their food intake. They eat all their meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner and then a late meal.

This kicks them into a calorie surplus. 
Late night eaters tend to choose foods that are calorie dense and high in fat or sugar.

Late night cravings can come from emotional impulses or habit and not real hunger. These cravings drive us eat unhealthy and more food than we need. 
Late night eating could disturb your sleep cycle due to discomfort, while sleeping with partially digested food may cause bloating or stomach upset in some people. 
A: If you are not tracking your food intake, have eaten all your regular meals during the day or have insulin resistance syndrome, then eating at night is not a good idea.

B: If you are within your caloric needs, keep an active lifestyle, 
are not tempted to eat unhealthy meals at night or intermittent fasting and eating at night fits best into your schedule, then eat.
