Not exactly. Here are the facts from researchers at the University of Maryland: Let’s talk about the Jacuzzi first. Yes, it’ll raise your core temperature…But bubbling away in a hot tub for 20 minutes only burns 5 more calories than spending that time on the couch, watching TV. It will, however, improve circulation. So what about a sauna? The dry heat will sweat away a few more calories than the hot tub, but the difference is negligible.
Bottom line: Enjoy a sauna or a Jacuzzi for the relaxation benefits…But don’t count on weight loss.
