I saw a deal on this on the local ABC affilliate... they dug into the research and it's all bullshit. Mens Health was using data from some marketing firm that is 2 years old, basing the "fattest" city off of data like the # of gyms, fast food, parks, etc per city and comparing to population.

Really bogus.

I feel somewhat responsible for Denver dropping from 4th to 5th. I've really been packing it on the last couple of years.

Its all that BBQ. Not that I blame you. I would eat it if I lived there as well.
