Kansas City ranked sixth-fattest city in the nation

In Kansas City, this dude is slim
Men's Health released the results of its top 10 of the fattest cities in the United States, and the results were not flattering for KC. We're living in the sixth-tubbiest town, sandwiched between the sweaty flab of Memphis (No. 5) and San Antonio (No. 7).

The results were based on calculating the percentage of overweight people, people with type 2 diabetes, lack of physical activity, money spent on junk food, and the number of people who say they eat fast food nine or more times in a month.

Men's Health broke it down even further by ranking KC 32nd for

overweight people, fourth for the obese, 20th for type 2 diabetes, fifth

for those who have no physical activity, and 51st for fast-food visits.

This

is just the most recent appearance of Kansas City on a list no one

wants to be on. We received a D-

from Men's Health for the STD rate. We ranked the worst

city for dating by Sperling's. And we boast two

of the most dangerous neighborhoods according to FBI crime data,

So, the average Kansas City resident is fat, lonely, riddled with

disease and in constant danger.
