America is a country full of fat people. From sea to shining sea, we dine on fast food, pre-prepared foods from the grocery store and processed foods. We love sweet things, rich things, salty things, creamy things. (Or, preferably one giant obesity cake that includes all of those flavors, thank you very much.) But in what areas do the fattest people in our country live?
According to Prevention magazine, “These urban centers have the highest rates of heart disease and obesity in the country, perhaps because they seem to promote sedentary lifestyles and diets heavy on fast food but light on fresh produce.” Is your city on the list? You might be pleasantly (or unpleasantly) surprised …
Some cities I thought for sure would be on this list are Buffalo, NY (known for its chicken wings and epidemic of strokes) and Chicago, IL (known for Chicago hot dogs and deep dish pizza). I’m not surprised there are no West Coast cities on this list. Enjoy your salads, Cali!
Visit Prevention‘s expose on The 8 Most Artery-clogging Cities in America for more info about each of these cities and what you can do to change your lifestyle if this info sounded all too familiar — and these food photos looked all too yummy. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go finish this Domino’s pizza I ordered for dinner. Chow!
