Lubbock ranked #13 fattest city by Men's Health

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – So, why is Lubbock ranked number 13 in the country? Men's Health Magazine has determined Lubbock is the 13th fattest city. That's using a formula based on surveys from the CDC, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and other research groups.

They calculated in part by the money spent on junk food sales, the number of people who ate fast food 9 times or more in a month, the percentage of patients with Type 2 Diabetes and Lubbock comes out with big numbers.

But then, Texas is by far the biggest state, in terms of belly fat, because Corpus Christi is #1, El Paso is #3, Dallas is #4, San Antonio is #7 and Houston is #9.
