sweat and infra red saunas
operationfree posted:
Someone recommended the infra red sauna with the ceramic heaters to help me sweat. My face gets red so I must use my blood vessels to burn fat. Will the sauna help or just be another expensive unused toy for weight loss? Are the other benefits worth the 1500.00 price tag? Thanks

Any weight lost that way would be water weight. The heat might be nice for relaxing your muscles and possibly boosting your circulation but I don't know of any real weight loss benefits. Perhaps someone who has more experience with this will write in.
