Mom, I think it's pretty hard to avoid some weight gain, but like Judy said, hopefully you'll be able to take any wieght off after you are done with the pulse. My son had to do a pulse a few months ago and I tried o have some healthy stuff around for him to munch on - lots of fresh fruits and veggies.
I hope the steroids help you get things under control. Take care
