I find it hard to believe that people up here eat fast food 20x a month?!?! I've been looking around and all I see is fit people, for the most part. My neighborhood is full of walkers/runners and there are parks everywhere with walking trails. Our first weekend here, we walked completely around White Rock Lake, which is over 9 miles, and it was packed with cyclists and walkers. I guess since it made the list, though, it's for reals.

haha, I was thinking the same thing. Forget stats, all you have to do is open your eyes in Dallas and then in San Antonio and you will know there is a huge mistake here.

Come on San Antonio, get your gut in the game! We have to be best at something. I blame In-and-Out Burger. Dallas has them. When SA gets In-and-Out, I predict this city will not disappoint!

Yeah, forget all the scientific data that's factual and used in these studies, mamatotex has eyes, that's all that matters!

This is debating which city is doing the worst when the whole state (and nation) is doing poorly. The 2010 state obesity rate for Texas is 31%. Just for comparison, the worst state was Mississippi at 34% and the best state was Colorado at 21%. Over time it's only getting worse everywhere.

This is both a statewide and nationwide epidemic, who cares whether San Antonio or Dallas is heading towards being horribly unhealthy faster? If current trends continue we're all going to end up in the same place anyway.

GOOD GRIEF olive green, sapphire knew what I meant.

I'm from Dallas. I love how people talk about San Antonio being so obese overall but when a stat says otherwise how quickly they forget.

I posted this thread in a lighthearted/natured way but I can see some people taking this WAY overboard. For every stat that's out there, there is another one contradicting it.
