I know there's a dieting with obstacles thread devoted to weight gain/loss on prednisone, but I want to see if any SBD dieters have ever had to deal with prednisone while staying on plan.
I'm finishing up my third week of P1 - I did an extra week of P1 because I cheated twice near the end of my second week.
I've been in an out of the hospital for the last week - I've been on an IV corticosteroid, and now I'm on a tapering dose of prednisone (that will be finished next weekend).
Does anyone have any advice for coping with the potential weight gain that comes with prednisone? Lots of people in the other thread have mentioned low-carb diets as the solution, since prednisone can raise your blood glucose levels and can wreak havoc with your body's insulin levels. Should I stay on P1 for one more week? I'm not having any difficulty eating like this - I feel healthy, and it's getting easier and easier to say no to bad carbs.
