"They" say the weight loss occurs by itself. Well, I can say the cheek roundness and some puffiness did correct itself within 3-4 months. But it has NOT been my experience that the weight disappears by itself.
Keep an eye on how many carbs you are eating -- bread, pasta, etc. Steroids cause a physical change that does make us more attracted to these foods, and I've found a habit developed that is hard to break even after the med is stopped.
Don't go diet-crazy, but do focus on protein, vegetables and fruit. And 30 minutes of walking 3x a week.
