That would be the exact opposite of the theory about "exposing to the right". Either way, you do not want to be using too much EV comp (either direction) so start clipping the ends.

Personally, I try to get the subject exposed correctly. If that means clipping the shadows or the highlights, I will try to minimize the clipping by EV comp or ND/GND filters; but the subject is the important part.
