A sauna will make you sweat a lot, which, in turn, will make you lose weight. But the only weight you will lose is water weight, and as soon as you rehydrate, you gain the weight back. A sauna was intended to help cleanse your body by making you sweat.

Thanks, I thought so too, but during sauna, my heart beat went up a lot, does that help losing?

I think that it probably does help a little bit, since your metabolism rises along with your heartrate. Just be careful. You can easily (and quickly) get overheated and dehydrated. If you want to lose weight, I think you should just jump on the treadmill. It's safer than sitting in a sweat box.

Hi, Sauna doesnt help in losing weight.It just brings about water loss. It takes 30-40 days to lose fat. An effective way of lifestlye management, would be to login to www.chihealth.in,an online Portal which looks at weight loss & Lifestle management( diet & Fitness ) Try Using this Portal for effective results

It is just a temporary weight loss - nothing lasting.
