  10.  Nina from Oregon."I'm ready to eliminate Sugar (including white carbs/grains) and Dairy."
  11.  Crystal, Regina. "
    Coffee/black tea - since I'm not a big coffee drinker anyway, I'm going to say black caffeinated tea - specifically my Earl Grey with double bergamot.  During the last challenge my intake dramatically went up along with my herbal teas, but I'd like to keep it more herbal and water than black tea, if for no other reason than the staining of my teeth!
    White Carbs - I'm going to stick with getting even better at getting white carbs out of my diet. To form the habit of having breakfast."
  12. Wilma from Manitoba. "I will be replacing soda with water and dairy with almond milk." 
  13. Melony from Toronto (that's me!) - Replacing grains, replacing white carbs, having minimal sugar, limit coffee to 3 cups a day.

Crystal has come a long way in conquering the soda addiction and she says,

"The two things I have found helpful is keeping my favorite product out of the house and when I really want some I allow myself as much sparkling water as I want. I also try to grab something with protein and a little salt. Seems to make me want water more. "
