          Key #6: Intentional Exercise

          December 17, 2003

          Prioritize exercise in your life. It is just too powerful a fat fighter for you not to have it on your side. There is absolutely no way you can control your weight for a lifetime without it.

          This key is very straightforward: regular, intentional exercise is a big deal, a huge deal. It unlocks the door to body control ” a state of fitness in which your body is metabolically geared for losing weight and keeping it off, and is flowing with energy and vitality.

          A common denominator among people who successfully manage their weight and stay fit is that they exercise as a matter of habit. Failure to put exercise at the top of your priority list, or leaving it off the list altogether, is a deal breaker, because you’re cheating yourself not just out of a way to shed the necessary pounds, but also a way to stabilize a normal weight and stay healthy for a lifetime.

          Are you doing enough exercise? To assess your current level of activity, take Dr. Phil’s Exercise Audit.

          If you’ve never exercised regularly, or at least not in a while, you’ll need to break yourself in gently and gradually. Dr. Phil suggests you consult with your physician, particularly if you have any chronic health problems.

          Start today, and in a time span as brief as 10 minutes in your workout, you will feel better, you will be energized, you will have a better frame of mind and outlook on what lies ahead.
