loose weight while on prednisone, I wish! I gained 15lbs in 2 months on it, was on 50mg for a week, then 40mg for 4 weeks, and got down to 7.5mg now, I made a mistake by eating a lot as it gave me food cravings like no tomorrow, it's not so bad now tho, as stkitt, follow the food suggestions and u shud be ok, avoid high salt foods too as it'll retain it, I noticed that with my puffy face from the pred :(
best of luck!
