Ffs I'm sick of them blaming 'autoimmune disorders'. I have several, I'm not a fat fucked up tub of lard. Autoimmune diseases tend to make you LOSE weight, not gain it.

Yeah, I have severe ulcerative colitis. I can get malabsorption, and the raising of my metabolic rate from blood loss/anemia/inflammation.

Even when I've had to take prednisone, I didn't put on weight, because I can just exercise and not eat garbage all the time to offset any increase in hunger.

If I have to hear another lardass mention "muh medikashun" or "muh condishuns" one more time...

Prednisone made me gain weight, but that's because I was a moron (15 years ago). I noticed I was gaining (got the moon face for sure) but just exercised more instead of fixing my diet. Oops... lesson learned.

Lol I LOST weight on prednisone because I had so much energy!
