It might appear that dieters lose significant weight through perspi­ra­tion. The revered reward for high intensity workouts is being drenched with sweat. It is true that perspi­ra­tion weighs something. However, the weight of fluid depletion is quickly regained by drinking water or beverages with electrolytes soon after workouts. This does not mean perspi­ra­tion is without benefits. Sweating regulates body temperature, helps keep your skin and hair healthy, and is a good indicator of workout intensity. But do not confuse this popular biomechanical dehydra­tion with significant fat burning.
