This is probably my first posting, I've been following here for a while, off and on. My trainer always spoke highly of y'all and I've found a lot of great information through the search function for past posts, so I haven't really needed to post before now.
I'm got a vacation coming up in a couple of weeks that I don't know what kind of medical care I'd be around, and I'd come down with a case of something, they didn't quite say what they thought it was, if they speculated. To get me back on my feet, they gave me a cortisone shot, some antibiotics just in case, nasal sprays, codeine cough syrup, etc.
Well, I'm feeling better now, but it's been years since I've had a cortisone shot, and that was definitely before I was watching my weight. It seems to have overdriven my appetite, which I've been trying to ignore and keep to portion control, but I'm noticing I'm still not losing weight. In attempts to counterbalance some of the meds, I've been taking some detoxifying sups, my usual regime of Rhodiola/Panax Gingseng, SuperFood mix, and I've got some probiotics and glutamine planned for after the ABs to help with a quick gut-rebuild.
What's really worrying me is the weight gain, I've been on Byetta for a couple of months, as I'm quite heavy, but I've been making some good progress that I'd love to stay on top of and not be set back by the cortisone, if at all possible.
So, what I'm looking for is if y'all have any suggestions for sups, or anything for that matter, to combat the cortisone-weight gain?
Thanks so much for your time.
