Saunas Burn Calories

According to U.S. Army medical research (Ward Dean, M.D.), “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna in a single session, consuming nearly 300 calories in the process.”

Many sauna manufacturers promote the calorie burning effects of saunas. Although this often figures largly into their marketing and advertisements, the verdict is out on how many calories are actually burned in a single sauna session. Some reports show that a single 30 minute sauna session can burn between 300 and 500 calories. Even the US military supposedly got into researching the effects of sauna on burning calories.

According to U.S. Army medical research (Ward Dean, M.D.), “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna in a single session, consuming nearly 300 calories in the process.”

The logic behind saunas and burning calories is that the increased heat causes the body to increase blood flow making the heart work harder. The heat also causes the body to cool itself through sweating, which also burns energy or consumes calories. Although, it is true that these effects will use energy and cause the body to burn calories, most of the weight loss that people notice when partaking in a sauna bath is from water loss. Water weight loss is quickly regained once you rehydrate.

Although the heat of a sauna will increase the amount of energy and calories burned, most of the weight loss provided by saunas is water, and not caused by burning calories.
