I have to go with everyone else here. There really is no solution so far. When I was on that high of a dose, I kept stuffing my face with pbj sandwiches and oatmeal cream pies. Those were the only things that curbed my hunger for more than an hour. I gained so much wieght, and my husband yelled at me every time I went into the kitchen and
opened the cupboards, I was depresed. Thankfully, though, once the preds were reduced to around 20mg my uncontrollable hunger went down with them as well as my wieght. I actually had an easier time losing wieght then than when my thyroid went bonkers and made me gain 30 pounds.
The only advice I can offer is to be patient (very hard, I know), and try to eat healthy fibrous food. Maybe if you eat a half pbj sandwich to get that quick hunger relief along with some carrots, nuts, apple, or some other food with fiber to work on those hunger pains later. Also, try to find a project that will distract your mind during those hunger times that you actually don't want to eat.
Just remember that you're not alone, and that this will not last forever.
