    Hi
    I'm on CD too (although have taken a few days 'break' due to having the flu - need sustenance!!)
    Steroids (if you mean glucocorticoids like dexamethasone, prednisone etc) will make you meel a bit hyperactive, and cause a slight increase in metabolic rate. However, they cause water retention, and a significant increase in appetite, so most people on steroids long term tend to gain a bit of weight and 'cushingoid symptoms' which means things like getting a chubby round looking face.

    What are u taking them for if u don't mind me asking?
