Diagnosed with Chronic kidney disease. Confusion when given options, confused with amounts of things. Suggestions?

I was diagnosed with CKD (54 GFR) and am confused on amounts of things I can and cannot have because of statements like Limit the amount of salt. Give me the exact amount I should have and I can adhere to that. I read conflicting things, like no dairy - then it ll say use milk instead of - am I allowed to have some. And fish - says you can have - then eliminates most kinds. Beans??? Melons?? No chocolate at all? How about coffee? Can I have occasional Ice cream?
