Twelve people work to drop pounds and inches while traveling across the country. Dr. Phil reviews Key #6: Intentional Exercise, which sends the participants to Dallas, Texas, for two grueling physical challenges.
“Twelve people have been on an emotional rollercoaster when it comes to their weight. Some of them, like you, have been battling obesity since childhood, and for some, eating is the only way they can handle life’s problems. They have one thing in common: They are all ready to make a change. You at home can make that same commitment starting now. Over the next few weeks you’re going to see amazing transformations from these 12 people, who have collectively lost a total of over 600 pounds by embracing The 7 Keys to Weight Loss Freedom. I want you to make a transformation as well,” Dr. Phil says.
