Many people like to sit in the sauna, and you’ll often hear people say “It’s great, I’m losing weight just sitting in one spot!”

Our body releases sweat as a means of maintaining homeostasis meaning, this mixture of water and salts is a way for our bodies to regulate our temperature.

Although you are losing water, which will cause you to lose water weight, the weight loss is only temporary. Additionally, you are not actually burning any fat by sweating, you are just dehydrating your body.
