    Using a sauna to reduce bodyfat?

    Has anyone gone this way to help reduce bodyfat?

    I know A LOT of weight loss is water weight which you get back right away.

    But a sauna does do much of the same thing as a 45 minute fat burn session would:

    - Increase body heat
    - Calories burned
    - Increase cardio

    Has anyone used this method successfully to reduce body fat instead of doing cardio?
    You can live a healthy life without Carbs.

    You'll die if you eliminate proteins or fats.

    i dont think it would reduce your bodyfat, but it may reduce your water weight, which can be stored in places where bodyfat is measured!
    so if you want to get a really accurite bodyfat % sure go sit in a sauna for 30mins, but its not like the fat will drip out of your skin

    How does a sauna increase the amount of calories burned? Please explain. You body heat goes up, but it doesnt mean more calories burned. Just because body temp is raised in sauna doesnt mean calories burned. Do you mean by increase cardio that it increases cardiovascular health??

    I'd like to know where you got this info, because it sounds very ...well inaccurate.

    Cardio requires your body to spend energy by moving, how does sitting on your but in a hot room increase your energy expenditure?

    Your body has to produce sweat to cool you off. That might have something to do with it. I'm not sure if sweating burns calories...

    i would think being colder would make you burn more calories, since your body has to work harder to maintain your body temp

    That's true. Being colder does burn more calories than being warm, but I bet being overheated still burns cals.

    both extremes cause your body to burn calories, whether to maintain body temperature by turning stored energy into actual heat, or by using energy to make your body sweat, thereby cooling you off.
