hello doctor, I want to ask if running during the day using a very closed jacket in order to sweat a lot (this is what many people do to lose weight or to burn fat quickly) is this good and correct to do? please explain, thank you

Hi Gita. In general, sweating does not mean that there is fat burning. Sweating in general is a process that occurs to regulate body temperature where our body has a temperature of around 37 degrees Celsius. If there is a heat source from outside such as sunlight that has the potential to change the temperature in the body, then sweat comes out which contains salt and water. Then, exercise itself can also cause sweating, because during exercise there is burning of fat into glucose and burning of glucose itself into energy and heat. The heat generated also has the potential to cause changes in body temperature so that sweat is released. If you exercise using a jacket, then this will trigger an increase in heat as well so sweat will come out more. Not because of more fat burning.

Consult your doctor about your condition for treatment and further information. Regular exercise, maintaining a balanced diet can help to lose weight. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
