I think I might have candida and I don't know

Patient

Q: I think I might have candida and I don't know how to really tell my mom and I just want to get rid of it so I'm trying to eat better but I don't really like a large variety of foods so I don't know what to do. I have some of the symptoms of yeast overgrowth and I've been reading about it and I have found that you are supposed to cut out sugars, dairy, wheat, and all these other things. That leaves you with some vegetables and meat. The problem is The only meat I like chicken and turkey and the only vegetables I like is corn but I can't eat corn and I can't only just eat chicken! So please help me I don't know what to do.
