    Thing is if using the sauna helps you to feel good it will actually help you stick to your program.

    I have been using a few sessions on a sun bed for the same reason, it makes me relax and feel good so I am less likely to stress eat.

    Good luck!

    to be honest, I always thought it made you lose weight too :)

    Oh, can't you go back to the sauna? Melanoma is not a pretty way to die.

    You don't stress eat when dead.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and risk a few "disagrees" to recommend the Sugar Busters eating style. You can get the book used cheap on Amazon. It was written by three doctors. One's an endocrinologist and I forget the other two because I'm at work and the book is at home. This basically involves avoiding sugars, simple carbs and foods that are considerably refined/processed. The basic idea of creating this diet was to help people lose weight and deal with high blood sugar at the same time. You would be eating fruits and vegetables with lots of fiber (no need for them all to be raw or anything like that), lean meats/other proteins, healthy fats in moderation, and whole grains. You would not be eating/drinking anything with added sugars, made with processed white flour, TV dinners, meals from a box, fast food, and stuff like that. Some people might find it too drastic of a change, but if your health or your job (or both) are on the line, then this might be the ticket for you. I do this because I'm diabetic and I don't run around feeling starving or skipping meals or anything like that. It has not made me sluggish and all nutritional requirements are being satisfied.

    This place is so tame now by comparison. This thread wouldn't even break the top 10 for the week back then.

    So many other message boards lock threads after a certain period of inactivity. Oh if only that could happen here.

    Yeah, I don't know why they don't do that...seems like it would be pretty easy.

    Back in the day when this thread was posted (ahem, @gothchiq ) people just piled on. There weren't even "like" buttons, so all the reactions in the early pages of this thread happened since it was bumped this last time. :lol:

    Ah well. Someone might still benefit from sugar busters.

    I've always been told that you should use the sauna to cut weight.

    Saunas are useful when doing a water cut to make weight, as in for a sport with weight classes. A serious water cut can see you drop up to 10% of your bodyweight for a weigh-in, but then you intentionally "regain" every ounce of that, if not more, before you actually compete (less than 24 hours later). It's not to get rid of fat, just to dehydrate yourself for a very temporary lower number on the scale.

    Saunas make me feel so lethargic. :(

    No. It makes a sticky mess.

    What about the steam room? Surely the extra moisture from the steam will help you wash it off.

    In a really hot sauna the sugar will melt and you'll be covered in syrup and draw ants. So, no, don't eat sugar while in the sauna. :smile:
