There's some circumstantial evidence that Charlie Sheen---though off all drugs except Charlie Sheen---is onto primal. Perhaps ketones are contributing to his (seeming) mania. 

We reserve judgment on this until more evidence comes in. But will say: We have experienced mild mania* ourselves brought on by high levels of ketones. It's an often-reported side effect of deep ketosis. (Or it's never reported at all, and was only an excuse for our editors to eat butter-soaked mashed sweet potatoes every night at 11 p.m. to help get to sleep.)

But it's been a while for the Trading Kellys team since we've cut out all the booze & dark chocolate long enough to turn the ketone strip purple. The Charlie Sheen episode has us motivated, though, to see if a little low-carb stretch could get the #tigerblood running & #adonisdna expressed.

*Editor's wife's note: Mr. Sheen probably has some psychological disorder. It's impossible to know, of course, & Trading Kellys does not mean to underplay, in any way, nor glorify, his potential mental-health issues.
