Everyone will have different habits in regulating his diet, according to Rina Poerwadi, founder of the community of healthy cooking Mom Can Cook. However, it does not mean that habit can not be changed for the better. Don’t leave your drinks even only a glass of milk.
“Do not get no breakfast because breakfast will affect the energy required to work,” said Rina, as talk shows about the results of research “Second Meal Effect”, which was held by SOYJOY and Prof. Dr. Ir Made Astawan, MS, in Kuningan Suites Jakarta.
