What to eat (or not to eat or drink) for Court; Super Lawyer Doug Landau’s tips and warnings [Part 5 of 7]
Protein – See “Carbs”. A chicken, turkey or tuna sandwich, has a good mix of protein and carbohydrates. Landau Law Shop founder Doug Landau notes, ‘You will have energy, not too many carbs to make you sleepy and no “spikes” and corresponding “lulls.”’ Reflecting upon his graduate studies in Sprots Medicine, Landau notes, “Protein takes longer to digest than carbohydrate, and it keeps your metabolism up. “You want to be in your best mental shape at trial.” Virginia multi-state lawyer Landau adds.
Likewise, you want to avoid the so-called “greasy spoons.” Too much fat in one meal may cause gastrointestinal distress, interfere with medications and metabolism. A balanced meal of proteins, carbohydrates and “healthy” fats (i.e., olive oil) may enable you to concentrate, be “energized”: and feel better during your court room participation advised experienced multi-state trial attorney and All-American Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau. IF a greasy spoon or fast food joint is your only option, try to make a healthy, sensible choice. Also consider bringing a piece of fruit or energy bar, but only if you have eaten these things before.
