It wouldn't: Saunas can temporarily cause weight loss from a loss of water weight. It will then come back when you rehydrate. You need to change your lifestyle, as hard as that is, to include a healthy diet and daily exercise. You should not fad diet, it has to be a life-long change to really work. If you are up to the challenge it can work. Saunas are not part of the solution.
