Dear Jack, Thank you for your letter asking for advice about what to eat before going to your job interview. Garlic and onion are believed to give you bad breath. You should not eat peanuts or papaya as they make you feel sleepy. Additionally, avoid fast food because it will give you stress. Meanwhile, a cup of tea or coffee can keep you awake. I hope you will chose the right foods and succeed in your interview. Regards, Dr. Glenn
