Weeks 7 to 8

Remove a junk food from your staple diet.

Guidelines:
If you treat yourself to a treat every day, start limiting it to once every other day or once a week. A treat is no longer that when you have it all the time! I have lemonade every day, so now I will start having it every other day instead!
