Some mentioned Infrared Saunas to me a while ago and insisted they were great for helping with weight loss, and my first thoughts were — What the heck is an Infrared Sauna when it’s at home and how can sitting doing nothing burn so many calories?!
So I hopped online and started doing a little reading, I came across MidWestSaunas.com who sell the far infrared sauna and offer a wealth of information on the subject. Apparently you really do burn a lot of calories while using one, because your body is working overtime to try maintain it’s core temperature and producing sweat — it makes perfect sense now I have had it explained, but I’d never given it any thought before…and I would have bet my bottom dollar my friend who originally mentioned it was telling porkies.
Oooops. Good job I don’t make bets with friends, huh?
If only my new house were big enough, I’d be all over getting me one of them!
