Does sweating mean you are losing fat or do you have to be sweating to lose weight? Here are the answers!
Gonna Make You Sweat…
The connection between sweating and exercise seems so obvious. People exercise and sweat, and because exercise is what you do to lose weight, the logical conclusion is that sweating equals fat loss. Right?
Er, no. Sweat simply is your body’s cooling system. Its presence or absence says little about you losing fat:
…Gonna Make You Groove!
So when you sweat, you lose water weight, not fat weight. Which is what would count. If sweating was all it took to get the slim bodies of our dreams, we could just lie down at the pool and let our extra pounds melt away. Which they obviously don’t. Unfortunately.
But don’t be disheartened! Getting rid of extra fat is not overly complicated, if you understand how your body’s weight works.
