Prednisone and Weight Loss
Thursday, June 28, 2012
About a month ago I was in a car accident and was given a course of Prednisone. I have been reasonably good with my food and fitness given the circumstances. (I couldn't cook for 3 weeks and had to rely on the generosity of my church family)
Now I am off all medication and back to a good routine but I am concerned about the side effects causing me to gain weight or not not lose weight.
I am burning 3,500 in cardio every week, but not ready to add strength training yet. I am 10 pounds from my goal.
Do I need to increase my cardio?
How long does it take for the medication to be out of my system?
Any advice anyone?
