    Do you burn more calories the more you sweat?

    So when I am doing cardio, usually the stairmaster, I am sweating like a fountain. I was thinking though, when I see people wearing hoodies or those sweat bags (like trash bags) so they sweat a lot more, do they actually burn more calories?

    Example: I did the stairmaster for about 33 minutes today and burned 650 calories, sweat all over the machiene (it looked like it was sprayed with a hose), if I was wearing a hoodie during this workout, would I have burned more calories? Thanks for the info. Just curious though.
    A year from now, you’ll wish you started today.

    Sweating has nothing to do with amount of calories burned

    One more question then I just thought of. Then why do people wear these sweats or bags on themselves? Just to get water and retained water out?

    A lot of fighters/wrestlers do it to cut water to make weight for a fight. Regular joes doing it doesn't make any sense to me.

    ^yup.
    and they do it pre-weigh in.
    All they have to do is be in the weight class when they do the official weigh,
    come fight time, they could be 5-10 lbs heavier

    People think it helps them to lose weight, and it does, but only water. Eventually you are going to have to drink the water back and gain the weight back.

    Because a lot of people are clue less. They think that sweat is like melted fat or something haha. And they like to see the scale way down after there workouts, but its just water.

    I actually saw a young guy go into the sauna the other day in plastic bags and a sweat suit. I asked him what the hell he was cutting for, thinking he had a weigh in or something soon. But nope, he was just in there to "burn fat". People are idiots.

    Yeah, that's what I kind of assumed, but I wanted to make sure. I thought it would just get the water out, but I didn't know if one was very hot underneth the hoodie then they would be hotter, therefore losing more weight. But I now know, thanks to all of you, that it is just water weight.

    but wouldnt wearing some gear like that increase your bodys core tempeture thus burning more calories and making you sweat more, so that being said the more you sweat we assume the higher you core temp is thus burning more cals thus





    thus
    my opinions are just that, opinions

    As a small note, sweat increases (ceteris paribus) as intensity of exercise increases.. So, very broadly, there is still a positive correlation with the sweat and fat burned. Of course, sweat is nothing to do fat, per se. But, it could be a signal (think of the same person in two routines, one is very slow one is strenuous. it is argued that high intensity workouts tend to burn more calories, particularly afterwards)

    yea wearing hoodies is like adding resistance as well as heat, you will sweat more but also will increase calories burned

    Nope. Your core temperature is hotter because you cant release the heat... because of the resistance of the sweater. You actually would require less calories to maintain your core temp thus burning fewer.

    For as minimal as those calories would be, you would burn more calories in a cold gym with minimal clothing Your body would require more energy to keep its core temp and thus burn more calries.

    Thus.

    They think they are burning more fat and/or calories.

    Granted *theoretically*, thermal stress does have a metabolic effect and does have an influence on energy substrate usage patterns and hormonal responses - all leading to increased overall 24 hour energy expenditure and lipolysis.

    However, the duration over which this would need to occur coupled with the core temperature elevation required would likely be prohibitive to inducing significant effects. Furthermore, dehydration presents a problem itself. Proper hydration is important to support fat metabolism since dehydration can impair the liver's role in fat metabolism.
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
