In brief: Short answer
Some people use a sauna to help lose weight.
While the sauna can be a helpful tool for weight loss, there are things it does and does not do. If you’re interested in using a sauna for weight loss, here’s the truth about it. Sitting in the sauna for 30 minutes will make you lose weight. Surprised? While it’s true that you’ll lose weight, that weight loss comes from water.

Regular use of the sauna has many beneficial effects however it does not help directly in long term weight reduction without specific diets and exercise.
