There is no direct relation between sweating and calorie loss.

If sweating occurs due to increased body temp,then body tries to compensate this by sweating.
Basically there is loss of water weight by sweating and it is temporary. It is reversible if you ingest more fluid. Loss of water wt does not effect any on your body's fat tissue.

So by sweating,you may not burn your calories.

All the best.
