uuugh, while on high dose of pred, I would be eating something and then while eating I would be thinking about what I could eat next, it was horrible. I have been down to 5mg for a month now and finally do not feel like a feedbag is a necessity.
I did gain 15 pounds I have since lost 5-7 of those. One thing is try to eat small meals throughout the day, have small calorie snacks. Drink a lot of water.
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
