I have been diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency. I was taking 20 mgs of hydrocortisone and I have gained 37 pounds how can I control my weight. All I crave are sweets and quick food fixes.

      Being on steroids is a challenge. I joined weight watchers online . Now I do a antinflamitory diet. Staying away from processed sugars is important. For me eating fruit instead.Staying away from breads and processed foods.1 step at a time this is how I lost 50lbs since Aug. I make tea at nite with 1tbl vinegar and 1tbl lemon juice.1teaspoon of honey. Drink water with lemon during the day of put some fruit in it.This will really help you. Best wishes.

      Maybe 20 is too much. You shouldn’t be gaining weight with the right dose.

        @Roo2 exactly I reduced the dosage myself and feel much better. Thank you 😘

      Unfortunately it’s the old eat less burn more trick that works. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Little changes at a time. I usually fail when I go full force with exercise and dieting.
