i am still trying to lose weight after prednisone (i was on it for 9 days) and I have a very healthy diet, tho' prednisone did push me into foods that were not on my diet and a couple of them I did eat and regret it today. My sister is still on prednisone but when she has too much weight gain, she lays off of it and loses weight and starts again. My male cousing does the same, is that typical?
