Have you noticed a pattern? You'll spend a couple of weeks eating clean, exercising and losing weight, but then the pendulum swings and you spend the next week or two indulging in your old unhealthy habits. After too many days where you're not feeling so good, you'll get back to your clean habits, and so the yo-yo goes.
