The mass is never technically lost, but is transformed into energy. But yes, a little bit of loss of mass in fusion and fission reactions. Even in a merger;ll be a loss of mass, as the mass resulting from the fusion of an atom is less than the combined mass of the original atoms, although the energy gained is incredible. It is true :)
