The diet, in which there are constant breakdowns on fast food is no better than the complete lack of control over diet. So say experts from the University of New South Wales. They found that malnutrition changes the intestinal microflora, which affects the metabolism.
The researchers conducted an experiment on laboratory mice. 16 weeks animals were fed on a special scheme, the diet "yo-yo". Four days a week, mice received healthy food, the other three sweets and other harmful products. Another group of animals was fed only healthy food, says Zee News.
According to the data obtained, mice on the diet yo-yo in 4 months weighed almost 20% more rodents from the control group. Another interesting fact: the intestinal microflora with this diet suffered greatly and did not differ from individuals who consumed during the experiment, only junk food.
