Actually a pretty good post you had explaining one of the possible reasons in detail. There are more possible reasons for his feeling better though.

This is simply idiotic.
Yes, you ate peanut butter for 3 days and then were somehow able to determine that your IQ had raised by 15 points. Well congratulations, this thread has lowered mine.
To anyone saying "oh yeah you probably cleared some deficiency" take a basic biology class. Chemical/vitamin deficiencies take months to clear up at massive doses of the deficient chemical, if it clears up at all.
I know I shouldn't be surprised being that this is ATS, a site designed to propagate ignorance.

There's two kinds of ketosis, the one from diabetic ketosis which is a disease state and dangerous; that's the one that will cause negative symptoms. Ketosis that is dietary in a nondiabetic is a NORMAL HUMAN METABOLIC STATE much like our ancestors were in a great part of the time when their only food intake was meat, dried meat, or fasting state, which would have been a goodly part of the year. Carb sources are seasonal in most climates. We're designed to store fat for times when food is not available and burn it for energy both body and mind; this is a state of ketosis. It's only starvation when the fat stores run out.
Note that ketosis is not confined to simply eating peanut butter; a combination of any foods high in fats firstly, then proteins and very low in carbs, no more than 20 grams a day of carbs, will keep you in ketosis. It's a fascinating mental state and everyone should learn what it is and how it works. It also gives your cells a break from a constant influx of toxic sugars and makes you metabolically more dynamic.

Sex, is a primal thing, not an intellectual thing.
Instead of going into details, let me put it simply. Sex won't lead you to enlightenment, thinking abut thinking will.
