Sweat is all the same
Sweating means weight loss
Water weight is the weight held by your body when it is fully hydrated. When you sweat, your body becomes less hydrated and naturally loses water through the process. When you rehydrate, the water weight returns and your body is no longer dehydrated. When your body can rely on a steady level of hydration, it retains less water and pushes fluids instead.
Many articles have made the rounds about the benefits of sitting in saunas, with weight loss touted as one of them. It's important to note that a person's metabolism, body structure, age, sex, water weight and the environment all come into play. Sweating can help you burn calories but in terms of weight loss, it is not a sustainable way to reach your goals.
While we are on the topic, we think it’s important to point out that every body, no matter the size or gender, sweats. And we think that’s wonderful. Your weight does not have a direct reflection on the amount you sweat, and any size person can suffer from hyperhydrosis, sweating from activity, or other overactive gland conditions that can cause excess sweating.
Sweat helps you detox
Nope, that’s the job of your liver and kidneys! Your liver helps by cleaning your blood and helping to replace and replenish old or damaged blood cells. Your kidney helps by filtering that blood for waste materials and regulating your salt, water and mineral levels by pushing out excess toxins through urination.
