Does sweating use more energy than not sweating?



  1. 0 Votes

    People sweat as a mechanism to cool themselves down. In activity that is energy intensive like running, biking or lifting weights energy is constantly being consumed in the body. This energy is released in the form of heat. The body’s natural mechanism to cool itself from this newly created heat is to sweat. The sweat is then evaporated into the atmosphere taking with it heat energy off of the surface of the skin. So yes, when one is sweating they are likely using more energy than if they weren’t sweating.
