San Francisco 'America's Leanest City' According to Men's Health
|Men's Health says San Fran is toothpicky.|
But let's start with the facts. Men's Health magazine looked at some stats in American cities, including the percentage of people overweight; the percentage of people with type 2 diabetes; and the percentage of people who don't leave their couches for a month -- which the Centers For Disease Control has, miraculously, managed to track.
The mag also looked at dollars spent on junk food, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the number of people who ate fast food nine or more times per month, as tracked by Mediamark Research.
|Not from around here are you, boys?|
Sure, we've got some fit folks around these parts. But we've also got people who are aren't fat for all kinds of unhealthy reasons: They're homeless, strung-out hipsters, meth addicts, spin class anorexics, etc.
Incidentally, the most corpulent city in the nation: Corpus Christi, Texas. Somewhat hiilariously, this town's name is Latin for "body of Christ." Must be a wide body.
