Infrared Saunas: Your Weight Loss Secret Weapon?


It’s that time of year when people start thinking about losing some of the weight they gained over the holidays. You already know that eating a proper diet and getting enough exercise is important, but did you know that adding a few sessions infrared sauna might add to your plan? Infrared saunas might just be your weight loss secret weapon. 

How It Works

While traditional saunas use steam or radiant heat to warm the air around your body, an infrared sauna heats your body directly by using light. What this means is that while traditional saunas can be a relaxing environment, they don’t directly raise your core temperature. On the other hand, infrared saunas focus on raising your core temperature, which leads to increased calorie expenditure. This means that you burn calories by just sitting and relaxing.

How Is This Different Than “Weight Loss” In A Steam Sauna?

You may have heard of wrestlers or other athletes trying to “sweat off” weight in a traditional sauna, only to gain it back again the moment they properly hydrate their body. This is because that any weight lost via “sweat” is only water weight. Your body needs to be properly hydrated to function correctly. However, in contrast to the “loss” caused by sweating, the core temperature elevation caused by infrared saunas has been shown to actually burn calories, not just make you sweat.

A Few Tips

Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your infrared sauna on your weight loss journey.

●Use your infrared sauna after exercise for decreased recovery time. Many users report that regular sauna use helps prevent soreness and increase range of motion, leading to more pleasant and effective exercise sessions.

●Use your sauna to unwind. Stress is often a hidden contributor to weight gain, or difficulties with weight loss.

●Use your sauna regularly. Users report that the best results come with daily sauna use.

●Always combine your sauna use with a quality diet and exercise program. If you’re not sure how to build a diet and exercise program, talk to your doctor.

In the quest to lose weight, it sometimes seems like everything that works is unpleasant. But with regular infrared sauna use, you can feel amazing and look great.
