I have asthma too, but it is pretty well controlled with my Flovent. I do find that as I continue to eat "healthy" that I do feel better. I refuse to call this a diet, because in my mind a diet will eventually end. This is for life!

I have Crohn's disease. I have been on Prednisone three times for flare ups. The longest I have been on it is about a year. One of the things that I notice is that prednisone will make you hungry. I remember waking up in the middle of the night STARVING. I would eat a bowl of cereal and go back to bed. The other issue with pred for me was water retention.

My question for you is that is your asthma stable to the point where you can do any kind of activity - even if it is just walking back and forth across your living room. If you are able to do that, AND if you have your doctor's OK, you might consider a walking plan. Get your doctors imput on this, please!

If that is not an option, then if I were you I would concentrate on small, frequent, low fat meals. Many of the dietary principles entailed here will do just that. Many of us use a website called It is free to use it. I go into the site several times a day as I think about it. Then at the end of the day, I post what I did. Feel free to ask questions! We are here to support you and we are all in this together.

Take care,
