I noticed that too both in Raleigh and Atlanta. Austin people ate a lot healthier.

No offense to Winston-Salem and Greensboro, but I really don't see them being 20 point ahead of Raleigh in the least fat score.

I think that you are reading the results backward. The Triad is the fattest on the list for NC. Raleigh is the least fat.

Ah, you're right. That makes a little more sense to me (sorry Triad).

Two Triangle counties lead the state regarding being among the healthiest of the 3000 counties in the USA.

These list. It all depends on criteria used. As we see by conflicting results based on different surveys

The Raleigh statistic does not surprise me at all as they have the highest education and income per capita in the state.

Wow so much disrespect towards the state we live in. Look I agree our cities have a lot of unfit people that love to eat and not eat healthy nor excersize but us discussing this on this thread is not helping the cause. Go out and help people in your community. Last I checked every state has people that are well over the "average" weight scale. Not trying to be rude. Just a little fruit for thought.

True, I live in Richmond County and there's a ton of overweight people here. Raliegh seems fit, due to a lot of transplants.
