How do you avoid weight gain when on prednisolone? What diet you should take?
Hi John, I don't intentionally want to ask stupid questions, however, you often use 20/4 and 18/6. Just to be clear, the first number indicates the number of hours you are fasting and the second number indicates the number of hours that you eat. Is this correct?

Teresa @hopeful33250 – No such thing as a stupid question (those are the ones a person fails to ask!). Yes 20/4 means 20 hour fasting window and a 4 hour eating window. 18/6 is same format.
