Movie Madness



itting still is not a strong suit of mine. Oddly enough, I am able to sit through nearly a marathon of movies in a weekend every spring at the Phoenix Film Festival. This year the stars aligned and I set a personal best. From Thursday evening March 31-April 2, I logged 13 full length films, several short films, a lecture, and three Q & A sessions, with Phil Rosenthal (creator of Everybody Loves Raymond), Peter Weller and Cuba Gooding Jr. From April 3-7 films played in the evenings and I added six more to my total. Documentaries “Happy” and “Starting at the Finish Line: the Coach Buehler Story” topped my favorite flicks list. “Happy” took you on a world adventure covering the science of happiness and what it can teach us. The uplifting film will make you laugh, cry and touch your soul. Very thought provoking, the film gives you much to ponder. “Starting at the Finish Line” kicked off the festival with a bang. The film chronicled the life of the legendary Duke University track and field coach Al Buehler. On hand for the special event Word Premiere was Buehler, Amy Unell (director and producer) and Grant Hill (producer and executive producer). Unell and Hill had taken Coach Buehler’s “History and Issues of Sports” class while at Duke. NBA superstar Hill is a forward for the Phoenix Suns. He has had an award-winning career since his days in the early ‘90s playing for Duke University, where he led the Blue Devils to two backto-back NCAA championships. I heard of Coach Buehler but knew little about him prior to viewing the film. Press releases and google searches barely scraped the surface of this man’s extraordinary life and accomplishments. On the surface one might categorize this as a running film with so many iconic track and field moments and athletes included. It is much more. He broke new ground in women’s athletics, international sport, and race relations. Words don’t come close to the footage Unell unearthed and the visual journal she created. Buehler broke so many barriers. He formed a long lasting friendship with Dr. LeRoy Walker, the Head Track Coach at nearby all black North Carolina Central University. Seeing NCCU and Duke athletes train together at the height of segregation paints a picture of Buehler early on in the film. The medal ceremony for the 200 meters track and field event at the Mexico City 1968 Olympics was (and remains) a powerful and controversial moment in sports and a watershed event in the civil rights movement. After winning gold and bronze, Tommie Smith and John Carlos accepted their medals in bare feet and held black-gloved fists in the air (the “Black Power” salute). They were asked to leave the Olympic Village and Buehler showed up to drive them safely to the airport. That clip speaks volumes about the man. I was in awe watching it. It gave me chills knowing he was in the house. When Duke’s Ellison Goodall approached Buehler about running at Duke, he took her under his wing, and the Duke women’s track team was born. Buehler gave up every men’s scholarship he had to help start Title IX at Duke. Buehler’s career spanned four Olympics, but he never let his success or ego get in the way of his deep desire to help athletes become better people. “There are a lot of great men and there are a lot of great coaches, but there are not a lot of great coaches that are great men. And Coach Buehler was definitely one of those.” Carl Lewis, 9-time Olympic Gold Medalist. The movie had so many take-aways. Whether you are a track and field fan, an athlete or neither, Buehler has impacted your life. Between life, work and training, you may not have time for a movie marathon but do make time for “Starting at the Finish Line.” You will be glad you did.

A Good for You Sweetener

After tasting pure maple syrup, it is easy to push aside those high-fructose corn syrup laden imitations. A great natural sweetener, there’s more good news about pure maple syrup from the University of Rhode Island (URI). Researchers there identified 54 compounds in maple syrup from Canada, double the amount previously reported, and many with antioxidant activity and potential health benefits. In laboratory studies, they acted as anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory agents. Initial studies also suggest that maple compounds may inhibit enzymes relevant in Type 2 diabetes management. These new findings were presented on March 30th at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim, Calif, during a day-long session exclusively examining the bioactive compounds found in natural sweeteners. Dr. Navindra Seeram, assistant pharmacy professor at URI and a lead scientist on the maple syrup research team, organized and chaired the session. According to the URI research team, maple syrup contains a cocktail of polyphenol compounds, several with antioxidant properties and many with well-documented health benefits. “We found a wide variety of polyphenols in maple syrup,” said Seeram. “It is a one-stop shop for these beneficial compounds, several of which are also found in berries, tea, red wine and flaxseed, just to name a few,” Seeram continued. “Not all sweeteners are created equal. When choosing a sweetener, pure maple syrup may be a better choice because of the range of antioxidant compounds not found in other sweeteners.” Before studying maple syrup, Dr. Seeram had published significant findings on the cancer-fighting properties of blueberries and other berries. He has just published a new book, “Berries and Cancer Prevention, which he co-edited with Gary Stoner of the Department of Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Science Based coaching

Endurance athletes have always been underserved regarding resistance-based training. Athletes have often been told that improvements in strength should only be made during the off-season training period and to abandon attempts to maintain muscle strength during the more intense training periods, due to the negative impact on overall recovery. Benjamin Stone, founder of Sigma Human Performance said this mindset is due in part to the disconnect between methods of resistance and endurance training and how to blend these training methods for a maximal result. Athletic Republic Tempe/Scottsdale and Sigma Human Performance have partnered to transform the way endurance training is prescribed. Sigma Human Performance, based in Little Rock Ark. a leader in the South for endurance coaching and physiological assessment. With the use of VO2max/metabolic testing, blood-lactate analysis, heart rate/power testing, and body composition analysis, Sigma sets the standard for assessing and coaching the aerobic potential of any athlete with maximal efficiency.


It is an understatement to say Mark Cosmas loves to run. The marathoner and ultra runner has run Western States 100, Leadville 100, Hardrock 100, Angelese Crest 100, numerous 50 milers and much more.

Amber Mellano felt the need to fill a void. “Along with the hundreds of other cyclists in my community, I was extremely frustrated at not having a bike shop in the Anthem/Tramonto area,” said Mellano. “As that frustration grew, so did my frustration with my job in software sales and so I decided to find a way to spend my time doing something I actually cared about. And that’s how I decided to open Bicycle Vibe…as a means to share my passion for cycling and all of the good that it has brought into my life.” Bicycle Vibe, located at 2605 W. Carefree Hwy. in Phoenix is a welcoming neighborhood bike shop and coffee bar. “It’s a place where enthusiasm for cycling, fitness, people and all around well being is contagious,” said Mellano. “The atmosphere in our shop embodies the exhilaration of a child getting his first bike, the determination of a person looking to make a healthy change in his of her life and the nervous anticipation of someone considering the purchase of a racing bike. We support several local riders and teams as a way of contributing to our community.” The full service bike shop carries Trek, Gary Fisher, Cannondale and Serotta bikes. It does repairs, SICI certified bike fitting and has all the parts and accessories to keep you and your bike safe and in great shape. You can reach the shop at 623-5823111 or visit

Why is my

body fat

too high? I Burn So Many Calories


question has been asked of me for decades. It’s been posed by men, women, and in recent years adolescents. And, not just by patients, but athletes I see at races or while training in the desert. Here’s an example. Karen had a serious problem. A patient of mine of many years ago, and not her real name, she enjoyed running but didn’t complain about her slow race pace. Initially, she never mentioned the chronic knee problems, the off and on hip pain that would occasionally keep her off the roads, or the fatigue that had been worsening in recent years. She averaged more than 55 miles a week of running, sometime over 60 miles. Her goal was to run a marathon, having barely struggled to the finish of three half marathons. Karen’s main complaint was that her body fat was too high. Her nutritionist said it made no sense. Karen was burning enough calories from running, and she wasn’t overeating. In fact, she watched what she ate, kept clear of fatty foods, and didn’t snack even though she would often be hungry. Visiting my clinic was her last resort, she told me as we first introduced ourselves in my exam room. There are possibly millions of people like Karen. They run, bike, sweat for untold numbers of workout hours in gyms, aerobics classes, and home exercise DVDs. And, watch what they eat. But clearly, something is wrong in many of these individuals. Body fat keeps rising. These would-be and want-to-be lean athletes have failed in their attempt to accomplish what others seem to have—both a fit and healthy body without excess fat. Why is it so difficult?

24 SWEAT magazine

They’re programming their bodies to burn more sugar, and less fat. The result? All day, and all night, their body’s metabolic engine keeps storing more body fat. It’s not. Karen and so many other men and women, young, middle-aged and older, and adolescents, have metabolisms that could work perfectly normal, but don’t. That’s because their workouts and the foods consumed are giving the body the wrong signals. They’re programming their bodies to burn more sugar, and less fat. The result? All day, and all night, their body’s metabolic engine keeps storing more body fat. I explained to Karen that there are two reasons for this problem. First, the training routine is too hard. Did you think that working out harder will burn more calories? It will, but not fat calories. The human body mainly burns two fuels to obtain energy—we burn calories of fat, and calories of sugar. By working out too hard, we teach our body to burn more sugar calories, diminishing fat burning. The result is our fat stores get bigger.

May 11

I explained all this to Karen. It was contrary to the magazine articles she read through the years; and it was quite different to basically everything her training friends were talking about. Many of them were overfat too. “Please just tell me what to do,” she apologized for interrupting me—her years of frustration being obvious. The remedy: Slow down. I told Karen to consider the total number of minutes she worked out, not miles, and to maintain that schedule. Running slower with a lower heart rate would retrain her body to burn more fat—not just during the workout, but twenty-four hours a day.

The remedy? Avoid refined carbohydrates. Consume more fresh fruit and vegetables.

Second, the foods we eat influence the burning of sugar and fat, even more than training. I explained to Karen that, some people burn more fat and less sugar even at rest. They are leaner, less injured, and healthier. Others, who may even consume the same number of calories, burn more sugar and much less fat. The result? You guessed it— they store more body fat. Why is this? Hormones. We all know that our hormones make us function in different ways. It’s why men are from Mars and women are from Venus. It’s why some don’t tolerate stress as well, others don’t have healthy bones, and why many store too much fat. In this case, it’s the hormone insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas each time we eat carbohydrate foods—especially the refined and low-fat variety. The more carbs, the more insulin. Insulin takes the carbohydrates we eat, which become glucose in the blood, and uses some of it for immediate energy. Insulin stores some glucose for later use, but 40 to 50 percent of the carbohydrate we eat turns to stored fat. If we don’t burn it, there it remains. I explained this important mechanism to Karen. She seemed dazed. “What should I eat,” she desperately wanted answers. The remedy? Avoid refined carbohydrates. Refined carbs cause us to store more fat. This includes processed wheat products including most breads, rolls, muffins, pancakes, and cereals, along with potatoes and corn, including chips, and all sweets do the same. In addition, so-called energy bars and sports drinks are big culprits, and products containing hidden sugars such as ketchup, salad dressing, and a surprising number of packaged, canned and bottled foods must be avoided. “That’s all I eat,” Karen sat up, anxiously. “But they’re all low fat.” “And half of these foods turn to stored body fat,” I emphasized. “They stimulate insulin, triggering a significant amount of those carbs to be stored as fat in the hips, thigh, buttocks, arms—everywhere.” To make things even worse, insulin also reduces the body’s ability to burn fat, even with the right training schedule.

Fresh fruit, lentils, beans, and even small amount of honey can be part of a healthy diet that helps reduce body fat because these healthy carbs trigger less insulin. Karen surrendered. She reluctantly agreed to eliminate all refined carbohydrates, including all sugar. She would consume more fresh fruits and vegetables, have eggs for breakfast instead of cereal, meat or fish as part of a healthy lunch and dinner, and snack on almonds, cashews, and a variety of other healthy food items when hungry—foods that would not impair fat-burning. After two weeks of slowing her running pace, and avoiding all refined carbohydrates, Karen’s energy improved, her mechanical injuries nearly disappeared, and she lost six pounds—her first weight loss in several years. After another two weeks, five more pounds; but now her clothes were fitting looser. People were asking her if she’s losing weight. She was burning body fat. Gradually, Karen could consume more natural carbohydrates, but maintained her strict avoidance of refined foods, especially sugar. She learned how to make healthy desserts, never get hungry and was feeling younger than her actual age. And, she became leaner—she was no longer fat. About three months later, she needed a new wardrobe because her clothes no longer fit well. And, she ran her marathon about seven months later, passing dozens of runners in the last two miles.


1. Workouts.

Teach your body to burn more fat by training at lower, rather than higher, intensities. Keeping an eye on your heart rate helps assure your body is burning a greater percentage of fat rather than sugar. This will keep the fat burning process continuing throughout the day (and night).

2. Warm up—Cool down. Starting your workouts with an active aerobic warm up, and ending it with a similar cool down, will further develop your aerobic, fat-burning system—comprised of slower-moving muscle fibers that burn fat. A 12—15 minute warm up and cool down will help this process.

3. Reduce refined carbs. Foods that can impair the fat burning process the most include refined carbohydrates. Normally, about 40 percent— often more—of the carbohydrates you consume turn to fat. So that bagel you’re eating for breakfast—it may be fat-free but about half may be stored fat by day’s end. Likewise for most bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, sports bars and drinks, and, most especially, sugar, which is often hidden in many packaged foods.

4. Pre-Workout. The worse time to eat these foods is before your workout. Even if you’re training properly to burn body fat, too much insulin (produced from carbohydrate consumption) can impair fat burning. (Using carbohydrates during or within 15 minutes after a hard workout or race won’t cause the same problem since insulin production at these times is not significant.)

5. Snack. Calorie restriction is often the first approach used to burn off body fat, it usually doesn’t work long term. You need a certain number of calories to generate energy to train the fat-burning aerobic muscles. Eating healthy, unprocessed food is a must, especially breakfast. For many people, adding a snack midmorning and mid-afternoon is also a key. Distribute your calories throughout the day as four to five smaller meals

Oyster Urban Adventure

Rain a bit unusual for Phoenix on April 9 when the Oyster Urban Adventure arrived at Heritage Square in Downtown Phoenix. While it was wet, it did not stop the adventure racers in the Full, Half and Oyster Shooter events. Participants in the Full Oyster started their morning with one teammate being hooded and bussed somewhere downtown. The teams first task was to find the team member. Other events included a 14 mile ride to the Phoenix Zoo, identifying movie clips, slip and slide, a boxing workout with a professional boxer and more. Teams rode to some adventure spots and were on foot for others. Distances covered in the full course were 21.9 for the full course, 6.5 miles for the Half Oyster and 4.7 for the Oyster Shooter. And the sun finally came out for the $50,000 special challenge : a

Marquee Triathlon After a mostly dry fall season of triathlon racing at Tempe Town Lake due to a burst bladder of a dam , Red Rock Co. returned to the scene with the inaugural Marquee Triathlon on April 10. As luck would have it, a downpour the day before shut the lake down for swimming and the triathlon turned into a duathlon. Three distances and relays in each were offered. The Mill Avenue Bridge served as the start line using a wave start. The first event off was the Half Ironman with a 5k run replacing the 1.2 mile swim. A 56 mile bike followed consisting of a two loop 28 mile flat out and back course. A two loop half marathon around the lake completed the distance. The Olympic distance du also started with a 5k, one 25 mile loop bike (same course, slightly shortened) and a single 10k loop. Sprint athletes started with a 1.5 mile run, did half a bike loop for a total of 12.4 miles and finished with a 5k run. Temperatures were unseasonably cool and windy on the bike course. Pro triathlete Kevin Taddonio set the pace for the Half Iron distance event with a 16:12 5k, 2:22:39.3 bike and 1:18:56.9 for the 13.1 mile run, finishing just under 4 hours in 3:59:25.9. When Taddonio’s feet hit the ground he flew and his run times were the best of the day. Chad Johnston, who won the amateur division, would set the fastest half bike split of the day with a 2:20:31.5. Competition was close in the women’s half iron distance. Melanie Sherman, Sue Meno and Jami Min were within one minute of each other with Min in the lead when they exited the first transition. After the bike leg and second transition, Sherman grabbed a two minute lead and added to it during the run. Pro triathlete Angi Axmann would be the star of the Olympic distance. She finished first among the women and second overall including the men. Axmann went 18:09.2 for the first 5k, 1:03:31.1 for 25 miles on the bike and 37:53 for the 10k leg in a total time of 2:01:09.4. Axmann was just 1:37 from catching Scott Schraff. Schraff moved from fifth after the first transition into first on the bike. After the bike he was 1:35 up on Axmann and 2:43 on men’s second place finisher Kai Karlstrom. In the Men’s Sprint, Kevin Riseborough took the lead on the bike with less than a minute cushion. Brian McHenry was breathing down hi s neck but ran out of pavement finishing just 9 seconds behind. Jane-Esahak-Gage, a long time staple at the front of the pack didn’t disappoint. She led from start to finish. The Marquee Triathlon kicked off the Arizona Triathlon Series 2011 and it was the first chance athletes had to earn points in the team and individual divisions. Café Boa on Mill Avenue provided the post race food. The seasonally inspired, all natural organic and fresh cuisine was a crowd pleaser. None of the more than 1000 entrants went home hungry. Regardless athletes did not get their feet wet, everyone had a great time. For complete results visit
