How do you avoid weight gain when on prednisolone? What diet you should take?
Hello @mmr1984, You will notice I changed your title a little to better describe your question and bring other members into the discussion. It's a really good question and I wished I would have known to ask it my first time around with prednisone when I was diagnosed with PMR. I gained around 40+ pounds. Here are some tips that you may find helpful.

I started looking at diet and lifestyle changes for helping with my autoimmune diseases after reading Dr. Terry Wahls book – The Wahls Protocol. She has an amazing story about how diet helped her MS symptoms – https://terrywahls.com/about/about-terry-wahls/
Have you considered getting an appointment with a dietician to discuss a plan to help avoid a weight gain on prednisolone?

@mmr1984, I believe you are taking prednisolone after having had a kidney transplant. Your question reminded me of this blog post by Mayo Clinic transplant experts:

@mmr1984, Now that we are finished with the holidays and overload of 'must have' food ads, I want to drop by and ask how things are going for you.
I tend to do best when I combine healthier eating along with exercise. It just seems like I am better motivated to stick with my plan. Right now, I am in the 'got-to-get-with-it mode.
What kind of exercise are you starting with?
Have you met with a dietician yet? How did it go?
