Myth and Fact: More Sweat = More Fat Burning

Myth: The more you sweat while working out the more body fat you burn.

Fact: Excessive sweating represents fluids, mainly water being lost from your body. When you eat and drink you are replenishing those fluids and any immediate weight loss one may notice after a sweaty workout is replaced with new fluid stores. Keep in mind that how much you sweat is not related to how much energy you’ve expended. Perspiration is dependent on factors such as temperature, humidity, lack of conditioning, body composition, and individual variability.
