This article discusses whether counseling strategy is better than usual care for adopting and maintaining long-term physical activity in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. 182 patients were allocated to a counseling strategy, which consisted of usual care plus a 30-minute structured counseling session recommending physical activity with a discussion of 7 points to promote exercise using a checklist. 158 patients were allocated to usual care. More patients in the counseling-strategy group achieved target energy expenditure through voluntary physical activity than did those in the usual-care group.
