So, actually currently off pred (yay) but i know from past experience thats unlikely to last long. My issue is that off pred i can hardly do anything (even staying awake is tough) and on pred im so ridiculously hungry i can barely think, which has meant ive gained a bit of weight over the last year or so, esp on my face. I really want to try and lose a bit, and deffo want to eat a bit better even if weight loss aint an option. the trouble with pred munchies (not sure if its just me or a general thing with pred) is that i crave fatty foods too - not just a little bit, a LOT, i know its more than i do when off pred, and so i can eat as much salad as i like, i wont feel full off it, i can eat till i feel sick im so full and yet still be desperate for some sugar, enough that i'll lie awake thinking about it! ugh! stupid brain! Anyway, ive noticed that avacado (which whilst not great fat-wise, is much better than cupcakes - my current fav) will be enough to kind of make my brain feel like its getting something fatty and i can cope with the cravings/hunger a little better if ive eaten it. So was wondering, does anyone else have any good tips/tricks to help with fatty food cravings whilst on and off pred!?! and any way that particularily helps weight come off the face - cant think how to exercise the face! lol! Thanks guys!
