Best way to lose water weight is to reduce salt intake and drink a LOT of water (4 litres/1 gallon a day). Saunas won’t do a huge amount to help if you’re not already doing that.

At my old gym we had a sauna and it was awesome! The people that used mine were appropriately covered (it was by the pool so most were in the pool before so wearing swimsuits) but I have heard some weird stories about naked people in there once!


I’m not a medical professional or anything but an old russian cure is activated charcoal for bloating. You’d probably have to buy it on amazon, although I did see it once at Walgreens but it was called something else (but only and main ingridident was activated charcoal).

My old gym had a sauna and steam room…I actually liked the steam room better…I never noticed if I was less bloated after, but I wasn’t looking, so hard to tell…

I stopped going because of the people that had no concept of nakedness and personal space…I would always go in wearing a towel, but there were a lot of people (never the ones that look good naked), that would go in naked, spread out, stretch, etc…things I just couldn’t “unsee”…it wouldn’t be bad if I went with a friend, because we would laugh about it…but when I was there alone, it was uncomfortable

LOL!! The one that threw me over the edge (the steamroom) – when we walked in, I didn’t see her and took a seat on one of the lower benches…I looked over my shoulder and there she was, laying on her back, spread eagle on the bench…all 250 pounds of her…then, some people left, so my friend and I moved to a different bench…a few minutes later, the spread eagle woman got up, walked down, stood RIGHT IN FRONT OF US and decided to start stretching trying to touch her toes…WTF?!?! I was done…LOL
