How hard is it to lose weight whilst still on steroids? I have put on a stone since August when I went up to 15mg Prednisolone. I will be on this dose for the foreseeable future. I always thought they made you feel hungry all the time, so you ate and put on weight. However, I don't feel especially hungry and have been making a conscious effort to eat well but still I have gained weight. As my Lupus is unstable at the moment I am unable to exercise. Any ideas please. Oh, and the eating season is nearly here!
