I have been on entocort and pentasa for about a year now.  I have gained so much weight after losing weight initially.  I stepped on the scale this morning and am so sad now!  What can I do to lose this weight if salads and veggies don't agree with me.  In the past prior to crohn's prescription diet pills from the doctor was the only thing that helped me to not over eat.  What have crohnnies found successful in losing weight.

Hi I too have become overweight and haven't thought about loosing it yet .I guess portions and slacking off the sweets might work for us and as far as a good exercise program I haven't used one in awhile .Although I used to do alot at one time. Would be nice though to go over some ideas for exercise for crohn's people. Perhaps a bike but then we all have so many body things going on we'd be different even with exercise needs

I think if a person can do more even if it is housework it helps without over doing it ,it's a matter of knowing your body and moving it when we can. I am trying lately to do more and with winter here I don't go out much but I know I have to start trying to get it moving.Perhaps try some broth's to help fill up between meals . lol gail

Hi There,
I have actually been going swimming at the YMCA which has been doing a lot of good for me from an exercise standpoint.  I used to run but I had to stop due to arthritis pains in my feet and an issue with my back.  Swimming or even water walking is a great way to burn a few calories with little to no impact to sore muscles and joints.
