In some cases, people who think about changing their eating habits will likely hold off until a new week begins. While it's good to have a starting point and goals, this "start on Monday" mentality can cause people to indulge quite a bit beforehand. It's a vicious yo-yo dieting cycle that experts and nutritionists see over-and-over again with clients, so it's not surprising that Sunday is the day of the week that Americans indulge in junk food. Sunday marks the end of the weekend, and for some, the appointed "end" of their unhealthy eating habits.

Even data from the 2020 Uber Eats Cravings Report show this to be true. According to their report, Sunday is the day that they see an increase of requests for "extra crispy" food, confirming that Americans truly do love to take "self-care Sunday" seriously. While this data does not claim why Americans particularly request extra crispy food on Sundays, based on this "start on Monday" dieting mentality (and Americans coping with the Sunday Scaries, which is a common name used to refer to work anxiety that sets in at the end of the weekend), it all starts to align.
