Hey T Nation!
So it is 2:30am and I have a question about weight loss, insomnia, and prednisone. Can prednisone store itself in fat? I have insomnia every night since about 1 month into to my workout routine - even on nights I work extra hard, am crazy sore, and feel exhausted. It feels like I am on a heavy dose of prednisone again without the mood swings or constant sweating.
I was on a mega high dosage 5 years ago for about 8 months. I cant remember the exact dosage but it was 80mg or more tapering all the way down to 2mg/day at the end (kidney thing, I am fine now.). I’ve been working out for just over 2 months so far.
6’1’’, 225 lb., large frame, body fat is probably between 20%-25%, blood sugar is normal,
My work out consist of:
Monday: Cardio warmup on treadmill jog 1 mile - back and biceps 30 minutes
Tuesday: Rest or Jog 5 miles (depending on if I have time that night)
Wednesday: Cardio warmup on treadmill jog 1 mile - arms and shoulders 30 minutes
Thursday: Jog 5 miles
Friday: Cardio warmup on treadmill jog 1 mile - core 30 minutes
Saturday: Bike around town (not strenuous)
The supplements I am taking are:
fish oil 2 tbsp a day-morning and night
glutamine after work out
Whey protein after work out
