How To Can A FEW Minutes Of Steam Bath Help You Lose Weight

A long relaxing steam bath session is just what you need to pamper yourself. To sit back, let your thoughts take wings and make the troubles fade away isn’t it luxurious? If I said it would help weight loss too, would you rush to take one immediately?

Steam Bath Can Reduce Your Weight:

Happy to hear that, aren’t we? A steam bath does manage to reduce a few pounds from your body . But, unfortunately the effect is temporary.

  • A steam room is heated to a temperature of about 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Sitting in the room makes you sweat copiously.
  • Water lost through sweating contributes to the weight loss.
  • You have effectively lost water weight and not fat.
  • Steam bath for a duration of 30-45 minutes is said to decrease up to 5 pounds.
  • People with excess water retention in their bodies will have lost more weight from the resultant water loss.
  • Water loss through steam also results in dehydration.
  • So, drinking water after a session is mandatory.

Sadly, replenishing the water puts the weight back right where it belongs.

To simplify further, the steam bath does not burn or zap the calories like exercise does. It removes water. In contrast, sweat from exercise is a direct result of busted calories.
