Texans taste like Bacon! Arlington, TX second fattest city in US!

BaconArlington, TX- the place I call home- has been picked by Men’s Fitness magazine as the second fattest city in the US. We’re second only to the all-you-can-eat steak-and-lobster-bisque capital, Las Vegas. I knew there was a reason I loved it here! This is an annual study they do of the 50 largest cities in the US. And by large, I mean population not girth. The list studies all sorts of factors like number of gyms and usage, accessibility to junk food, alcohol consumption, and city initiatives to curb obesity.

If you live in Texas, fear not! You’re most likely included in the list too! Of the top 10 fattest cities in the US, 6 in Texas. Insert obligatory “every thing’s bigger” joke here.

Here’s a list of the Top 10 Fattest cities in the US, with Texas cities highlighted:

  1. Las Vegas
  2. Arlington
  3. San Antonio
  4. Fort Worth
  5. El Paso
  6. Dallas
  7. Miami
  8. Oklahoma City
  9. Mesa
  10. Houston

Here’s a couple interesting facts about Arlington:

  • Arlington has the 3rd highest number of donut shops per capita in our survey.
  • Basketball courts are practically nonexistent here, among the fewest per capita in our survey.
  • Texas state law limits or prohibits obesity-related lawsuits against food manufacturers and restaurants.

Congratulations Texas, we won! I think this calls for a barbecue!
