Do Sauna Suits Help You Lose Weight?

Hi Davey,

What are your thoughts on the use of sauna suits and toning wraps while working out? Do they help you lose weight?


4731Hey Jerry,

Let’s dive right into it. Do sauna suits and the like help you lose weight? Yes. But not really.

First, let’s differentiate between losing weight and losing body fat. Losing weight can happen for a variety of reasons. If you become less muscular, you lose weight. Heck, if you amputate a limb, you lose weight. Losing body fat, on the other hand, is very specific. When most of us talk about losing weight, we’re really just using an inaccurate synonym for fat loss.

Having made that distinction, let’s talk about sauna suits. They’re made of waterproof fabric and cause the wearer to sweat profusely. Because the waterproof fabric blocks evaporation, the body isn’t able to cool properly. As a result, more sweat is produced.

Indeed, sauna suits will help you lose weight. But weight loss doesn’t mean fat loss. By hijacking your body’s natural cooling system through a sauna suit, you really only lose water weight. Once you rehydrate, the weight comes right back on.

It’s also worth noting that sauna suits are actually quite dangerous. After all, your body cools itself for a reason. Through excessive sweating and increases in the body’s core temperature, dehydration and heat stroke could result. In addition, there have been many reported cases of fainting, weakness and even heart attacks from sauna suits.


P.S. If you’re actually looking to decrease body fat, I recommend The Davey Wavey Weight Loss Program. Rather than gimmicks or tricks, the program is based on real science and rooted in practicality.

  1. Great insight. I’ve taken my notes. I also found to be full of great tips that can go in hand with this article.

  2. I can think of one way to turn a sauna into a fat-buring cardio work-out!

    God knows I’ve done it in steam rooms, possibly with the blogger when I was in college when I first stated going to bathhouses in nearby Providence. Never did it in a sauna, though.

    • It’s wodenrful to have you on our side, haha!

    • I told my kids we’d play after I found what I needed. Damnit.

    • Just wanna say that this Volkman guy writes a damn good review… not just this one, but the bunch he’s done lately. Keep that shit up, we like it out here in Boise.

    • Díky za další skvÄ›lý report, zase vidím další nový pohled. A zase se ničemu nedivím.S tÄ›mi kolejemi by to imho jak pro organizátory, tak pro návÅ¡tÄ›vníky bylo jednodušší, kdyby na stránkách Adviku jen upozornili, že tam nÄ›jaké koleje jsou a lze se na nich ubytovat. NávÅ¡tÄ›vníci by už zaÅ™izování a případnou byrokracii zvládli a obÄ› strany by byly spokojené. Je mi jasné, že se v tomhle případÄ› orgové snažili vyjít vstříc návÅ¡tÄ›vníkům, takže se mi to nechce kritizovat, ale nÄ›kdy je takové vycházení vstříc prostÄ› hroznÄ› neÅ¡Å¥astné.

    • Well done article that. I’ll make sure to use it wisely.

    • Ciao Valeriograzie per il commento e grazie per la critica, anzi spero proprio di poter fare di meglio visto che l’ho ideata e disegnata in tempi ristrettissimi! :DIl workshop era con Max il bravizzimo fumettista spagnolo, l’unica regola era di non mettere ballon, non so come ho fatto a finirla in tempo, però è stata una gran bella maratona.

    • There’s nothing like the relief of finding what you’re looking for.

    • I’ve figured out how I wanted my blog layout and everything, it’s just that other blogs that I’ve visited that use Blogspot have nice big headers. Mine is just text, so can someone enlighten me on how to make a pretty header?.

    Someone please help me im lost

    • Hey, that’s a clever way of thikinng about it.

    • No one can predict future no matter how rich you are. If I were Maureen, I might tried to chat with my husband until he was willing to have a heart-to-heart talk after all. Never give up without trying.

    • Love the colours in the bikini defo a keeper love the print so 80s. The boots rock you are going to get so much wear from them fab investment xoxo

    • Me dull. You smart. That’s just what I needed.

    • Oeps, after reading now about your experiences with the jalapeno super spice residue I think I really should be much more serious when cooking in future with pepper… But it is a good tipp what you wrote about milk and ice cubes. And your photos are again gourgeous. Is it a wallpaper you used as background? I just love it together with the way how the peppers are placed on it

    • Ya lo he escrito en la bitácora de Antonio Rodríguez, pero insisto. Echarle la culpa a los otros de los fracasos propios es una postura bastante cobarde. ¿Cuando los otros ya no estén quién será el responsable de nuestros fallos?Lo que me parece bestial es que haya sido parte de la ciudadanía la que haya quemado algunas casas de los emigrantes. ¿Cómo se para ahora eso?Y todo esto está ocurriendo ahí mismo, al lado. Si lo vemos como algo lejano estaríamos cayendo en un grave error. Estas cosas se contagian con suma facilidad.Un saludo.

    • Very pleased to meet you Miss Kit! We are so sorry that you just lost your Mom. We are so thankful, though, that you were taken in by her and loved and now are with the very loving Brian’s home, they are so good to kitties. We hope that you will adjust with ease.

    • खरं आहे. आपल्याकडे अफजल खानाचा संत होऊ शकतो.. पण इतके महत्व्चाचे ठिकाण दुर्लक्षित राहू शकते. लोकं भोपाळला जातात, पचमढीला जाण्यासाठी. एक दिवस एक्स्ट्रॉ हातात ठेऊन हा स्तुप पहायला पण जाऊ शकतात. वर्ल्ड हेरीटॆज आहे ही जागा.

  24. Toll gemachte Homapage, das Layout gefaellt mir echt gut!
    War bestimmt ne menge Aufwand.

  25. Klasse Website. Vielen Dank.
