How Many Calories Do You Burn in an Infrared Sauna?

The number of calories burned in an infrared sauna can vary depending on several factors, including your body weight, age, sex, metabolism, duration of sauna use, and the temperature of the sauna. However, it's important to note that the calorie-burning effect of an infrared sauna is relatively minimal compared to other forms of exercise.

While using an infrared sauna can increase your heart rate and promote sweating, the primary calorie expenditure comes from your body's effort to cool itself down through perspiration. The actual calorie burn is estimated to be in the range of 100-300 calories for a 30-minute session, but again, this can vary widely depending on individual factors.

It's essential to approach infrared sauna use primarily for its other potential benefits, such as relaxation, stress relief, improved circulation, and potential temporary water weight loss through sweating. For significant calorie burning and overall health benefits, incorporating regular physical activity and a balanced diet into your routine is recommended.
