Sharon, it’s the steroids, I too ate like an animal and gained 20-30lbs on them. I have gotten back to my pre steroid weight, but Merry used to joke that not only would I finish my and her dinner, I would also eat all of the old stuff that was canned in the cabinets (the stuff you normally would donate to Christmastime food banks). Don’t stress too much about the appetite, just eat less calorie dense foods like greens, whole grains, and vegetables. There are diet books that lets you design your eating based on glycemic index that are also healthy. Carrots and Green Beans come to mind for snacks. Fill you up, with low calories. Stay away from Cheesecake Brownies and Ice Cream.
Take care, and, well, don’t blame yourself for eating like a Labrador retriever.
