There was a lady in my zumba class and she said that drinking water while sweating is bad since it stops burning calories . Well , I really get thirsty while exercising and I sip water during exercise and a glass after.
So I just wanted to know whether there is any logic to her claim.

Not at all! It's very important to stay hydrated  during any workout.

No,  drinking water is good and is what you should be doing is you are sweating.  I have even heard that drinking cold water burns more calories than room temp. water because your body will then burn more to regulate your body temp.  Not sure if I buy it, but is something I heard once,  regardless you should still drink water

That whole "it stops burning calories" thing just doesn't even make sense. It doesn't work like that.

Well I am glad to hear that there is no sense in her logic . Really whenever I used to drink water despite her claims, I used to feel guilty . Now I won't have to.  Yay !!!

No. In fact it's natural!
