Does pred speed up your metabolism? I was worried about gain, but seem to be able to eat just about anything lately and not gain weight. Thoughts?

I've been eating like a madman and actually starting to gain weight back I lost from my flare.
I'm wired and focused 24-7 though and it makes me not very tired either.
I kinda like it.
Prednisone 10mg (1.5) tabs twice per day= 30mg per day

Asacol 400mg (3) tabs twice per day= 2400mg per day

started both meds on Thursday 10-4-2007

10-22-07- coming out of about an 8 week flare (my first one ever)

Prednisone can definitely help your appetite and energy. It effects everyone differently psychologically too. For me it put me in a great mood!
