Can a Hot Tub Help To Lose Weight?
Most everyone has some weight loss goals. And trying to lose weight usually entails a measure of commitment and some changes to lifestyle. There are the obvious diet considerations, there are various options for exercise and fitness, and of course, there are bad habits to purge. Surprisingly, there’s actually an enjoyable option that will help realize some of the weight loss goals – having a good soak in a hot tub. It’s both surprising and effective.
Hot tub owners already know that hot tub soaking provides hydrotherapy benefits on a number of fronts. There are benefits in terms of relaxation and stress relief; there are added benefits with pain management; and there are even more benefits when it comes to getting a better sleep. The truth is, hydrotherapy can also help with weight loss. It’s not a “magic bullet” but when combined with diet and exercise, soaking in a hot tub can help.
One of the more interesting weight loss approaches is Hot Tub Yoga. It combines calorie burning and improved digestion to promote weight loss. For the right person, this is an effective method.
Calorie burning is the simple part – inside the hot tub, the yoga poses and breathing techniques contribute to burning calories. And this can be done rapidly or by holding the poses for a time. Both engage the muscles and therefore burn calories. The hot water just augments the process.
As for digestion, hot tubs promote better blood circulation overall, and this allows the digestive system to work better. In fact, soaking in a hot tub is known to benefit other organs in the body as well. And because hot tub soaking encourages more water drinking, this also helps digestion.
Whatever the weight loss approach, it’s always important to be safe, and to take precautions in the hot tub. Needless to say, it’s wise to get physician advice. But it’s also important to use the hot tub at the recommended temperature, and not to overstay the limit. Being tired or fatigued may not be the best time to be alone in the hot tub, and of course, consuming alcohol should be with discretion. Hot tub soaking should always prioritize safety.
