Myth: It’s a common belief that extreme sweating will help you get rid of toxins faster, and therefore lose weight faster.
The rationale is that because a high percentage (75%) of our body weight is water, losing some of that weight through sweating will help dieters slim down. It will, but the results are superficial and only temporary.
Bust: Although you may actually weigh or measure less right after a sweaty session of Bikram Yoga, the results are short-lived and not an effective way to lose weight. That weight you lost will be back as soon as you replenish the water you lost.
