    There's a misconception that you can lose weight sitting in a steam bath. The truth is any weight loss that appears to be a result of a steam bath is actually fluid loss from excessive sweating. Once you replenish those fluids, the weight will come back.

    A single sauna session will burn as many calories as you would during rowing for 30 minutes. Weight loss occurs because body fat becomes water-soluble at 43ºC and the body can sweat it out.

    Using a steam room can be relaxing and beneficial for a number of reasons, and can contribute to weight loss by temporarily raising your metabolism and easing the discomfort of exercise. However, it will not cause significant long-term weight loss by itself.

    Some people do. You may too.

    But you can try take your weight before and after and see what it is.

    Chances are that you will have some water weight loss if you do not drink anything while in the steam room. But after few hours take the weight again and see if you have recovered all the weight loss.

    no, sitting anywhere doesnt make you lose weight. the only thing the steam room does is dehydrate you. there are hundreds of people living in hot humid environments who remain fat. if there was any logic to the steam-room theory, there wouldnt be.

  • Well through the sweating your body loses toxins.When you lose those toxins your metabolism will be boosted and you may lose a few pounds.But if you want to lose up to 5 pounds better try running(you also sweat) or if you are a guy,weight lifting.More muscle mass,better metabolism!!!
