you may not have to....but I like to. I do 4 hours a week at the gym between spin bike class and weight lifting......and 5 hours a week at home.......between walking and weight lifting. For me it's good medicine........helps with the blues...
In response to the opening post: yup, I workout approximately 41/2 hours a week.

I would like to see that program - I watched Mosley's program on fasting which included interviews with really leading edge scientists from around the U.S. and it was fascinating....

I don't know what the experts think--all I know is that if I walk on my treadmill everyday & stretch, I feel better--physically, mentally, emotionally. If I skip it, I feel terrible. So for me, exercise is a daily habit....period.
Dr. Mercola has a lot of information on YouTube about TABATA exercise or High Intensity Interval Training that only takes about 16 minutes. Lots of studies now show that it works. Covert Bailey had programs on PBS some years back about doing "Wind Sprints" that make the body THINK you are going to keep running long distances and therefore the body builds up to be ready, but you really only run for about a minute then walk, then repeat etc. Certainly doesn't ruin your knees, hips and feet.
