Many people on IP can do moderate exercise. It's important to me to have exercise as a part of my routine so that I can be healthy and fit, not just at goal weight, when I finish this diet. I wanted to start while I am still on IP, so that moving into maintenance it will already be second nature.
I started out with a coach and then moved to alternatives when I could no longer afford the clinic and IP products. At the time my coach (and I know the information we're given does vary) advocated 30 minutes of light to moderate cardio, not getting your heart rate up too high, as well as some light weight lifting for toning. I've found that it works for me and I feel much better since adding that into my routine.
