Q. I do have a good diet and don’t feel any short in nutritional intake. I do have a good diet and don’t feel any short in nutritional intake. Generally I sweat a lot and at times feel very tired when I sweat in excess. Do I get tired with sweating or is there anything that I need to know?

A. I do believe that excess sweating burn calories. When ever your body heats up, you burn more calories. That is half the purpose of "diet" pills. It increases circulation, increases heart rate, and it takes energy for your body to release sweat. The exact amount of extra calories you burn, I do not know. I used to wear "sweat bags" when I was younger to make weight for sports and it seemed to do wonders, so if you think it helps that’s all that matters.
