Fungus (Candida) and Ketosis

Dave/Bulletproof intern,

I'm wondering what your thoughts are on Paul Jaminet's assertion that you actually need glucose (and thusly can't deprive yourself via moderate to severe ketosis via VLC dieting) to combat a fungal infection -- in my case, Candida Albicans.

Understanding, of course, that I'm doing MCT oil and coconut oil and that these are probably very helpful, I'm trying to optimize things to speed the resolution of my issues.

Can you comment on proper macronutrient ratios while on the BP diet for optimal health? I love the simplicity of the diet layout graphics but I think ratios for combination would be extremely helpful.
