Rami Shmuely represents clients in person injury matters as an attorney at Chavin Mitchell Shmuely, PA, a law firm in North Miami, FL. An accomplished member of his field, Rami Shmuely has been named a Rising Star in eight consecutive years by the attorney-rating service Super Lawyers.

Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes the country’s most outstanding attorneys from over 70 practice areas. Based in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, these attorneys stand out as having attained high levels of professional achievement and peer recognition.

Super Lawyers’ selection process begins with creating a pool of candidates by accepting nominations from attorneys and the general public. The rating service, which also compiles its own list of nominees, then subjects each candidate to a detailed evaluation, first by the Super Lawyers research staff and then by leading attorneys in each of the practice areas.

Super Lawyers subsequently categorizes attorneys based on the size of their firms. Those candidates who have received the highest number of rating points in each category undergo additional checks before Super Lawyers publishes the final list.

Ultimately, no more than 5 percent of attorneys in each state earn the Super Lawyers distinction. Meanwhile, the Rising Stars list, which consists of attorneys who have either practiced for a decade or less or who are not older than the age of 40, represents a maximum of only 2.5 percent of lawyers in any given state.

Many cyclists train for long distances. Eating the right food goes a long way toward sufficient endurance and strength. To meet this goal, a triathlon training coach offers the following guidelines:

*In general, consume a variety of unprocessed foods (fruits, nuts, whole grains, low-fat dairy, vegetables and lean meats). Sixty percent of your intake should come from carbohydrates, 25 percent from unsaturated fats, and 15 percent from lean proteins.

*On days before events or long-distance training, eat one to four grams of carbs for each kilogram of body weight. Taper off on calories as the event day approaches.

*As you ride, the need for calories per hour increases with the duration of the event. Take in 120-240 calories per hour for durations up to three hours. Increase to 250 to 400 for three to six hours, and 400 to 800 for over six hours.

*Individual nutritional preferences vary. Some choices for in-event consumption include sports drinks, energy bars, fruit, and pretzels. Choose what tastes good and sits best in your stomach, and drink one or two bike bottles of water or fluid per hour.

*To enhance your post-event recovery, consume 1.5 or 2.0 grams of carbohydrates per kilogram of body weight. Doing so within 20 to 30 minutes will help you snap back from the rigors of riding.
