I have been flaring for 4 months. I went on prednisone, 40 mg, + Liaalda and started working with a nutritionist, alternative health guy. He recommends I stay on meds and take supplements, plus a diet of short grain brown rice, white fish, plain chicken, and root vegetables cooked till soft. I have been on this diet for 6 weeks and it seemed to work, unless I cheated. I’ve lost 11 lbs pounds most of it as the Prednisone has been tapered down. Two questions:

1. does this diet sound familiar to anyone and has it worked for them

2. Has anyone had experience losing weigh as they tapered down? I’m so sick of being sick!

Yes. I have lost too much weight. Just sounds to me like your diet is just that...A diet...I try to dring as many weight boosters as I can during a flare. Boost, Ensure, etc... Anything that will help. Wishing you well.
