Very similar for me, I started Keto just before thanksgiving and was loving how I felt and the results I’ve been having. When I went home over the holidays, hanging out with buddies and carelessly eating made me gain some weight back and generally brought back some of those carb addiction symptoms. Since being back now and getting myself back on track, I’ve started feeling better again and losing weight daily.
On the subject of BPC, for me I can have it as my morning meal and not be hungry at all for the rest of the day, but sometimes i’m in the mood for actual food(Bacon…). The way I make it is, 1 Tbsp Kerrygold Butter, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 Tbsp heavy cream, and if i’m in the mood to make it a little sweeter, i’ll add a very small amount of vanilla extract. Once I tossed a scoop of peanut butter in the blender with it, gave it an interesting nutty flavor. Although it really is different for everyone, my older brother who also is on keto doesn’t drink much BPC just because he really likes breakfast foods.
