I’ve been keto bout 9 months and have crohns disease.
I quit medications about four months in because I felt so good, but I was a bit too positive i guess. But I really want to be medication free. I ended up with a flare up in december and had to go on prednisone. When I was finally tapered off of it two months later I was hospitalized again. So prednisone got started up again and I can now taper down again.
I was doing very well weight loss wise before prednisone and now I am fighting not to gain weight.
I am even trying a more carnivore keto right now, because I really want to loose more weight! (Next to feeling good an trying to get healthy of course) It’s very frustrating not to be able to loose weight because of these stupid drugs!
I really hate the effect of the drug on my mind and cravings. It’s very annoying.
Is there anyone with tips on this diet while on prednisone?
Is there anything I should do or NOT do.
Can I avoid getting more insulin resistant because of the drug?
Anything you can tell me!
