I think it can be just as hard for some people to lose weight as it is for people to gain weight. After that thought...........
When I was flaring bad and on prednisone I lost 10 pounds, I had some junk in my trunk to lose anyway but have since gained it back and am have not gained anymore (silver lining). But let me offer some weight gaining advice. Cheese, cheese and more cheese, blue cheese, gorgonzola cheese, brie, goat cheese also.....chips (chips are not good advice but if you become additcted you will gain weight.....my small attempt at a joke). Anyhow, cheeses do have a lot of fat in them and if you like them adding them to meals should help pack on a few pounds. I make a mean gorgonzola burger!
