do sauna suits help you burn more calories? i know they help with short term water weight loss and that they do make you sweat more which needs calories to occur. but iv'e heard that they often drain your energy and can effect your performance.

More than anything they make you sweat and become dehydrated more. For regular every day training I would highly discourage their use.

i like them ion cold days to get warm for maybe the first 10-15 minutes of your workout... but once you get the sweat going I usually take it off unless I am trying to cut weight.

No.
They will help you sweat a hell of a lot more though, and are generally just used to help cut weight.

Anything that dehydrates you will actually work against burning more fat.

As stated about they are typically only used to cut weight.
