The Men's Fitness "Fattest and Fittest Cities" list has been released for 2005. New York City last year was the 21st fattest city in the country. This year, it's moved up to 8th! (Before you get excited about the improved rank, you should understand that this means New York has gotten FATTER.)
Last year's fattest city was Detroit and the fittest was Honolulu. This year's fattest is Houston, and the fittest is Seattle. (Please refer to the title of this post.)
Boston, where I was born and raised, is the 11th fittest city. I love New York, but as far as this survey is concerned, I'm considering myself a Bostonian.
You know, you New Yorkers really should watch what you eat.
