No, sweating in itself cannot make you burn more calories or lose more weight. Sweat is simply water and electrolytes lost from your body. In fact, your body makes sweat to control your body temperature when it gets too high. Sweat is influenced by many factors such as the weather, the intensity of your workout, your physical condition and what clothes you are wearing.
It’s very important to know that any weight loss noted directly after a workout is just a loss of water that you need to replenish when you rehydrate yourself. Judge your weight loss by the intensity of your workout and let the amount of sweat be your indicator for how much water you need to drink after an exercise.
