Default Latest findings show everything might just be bigger in Texas, including its residents.

Look at a map of the United States and you'll be reminded of just how big Texas is. But what you can't see is the size of the state's citizenry: Five Lone Star cities are among the nation's fattest, with Corpulent Christi at the top.

This also showed up in Mens Health Magazine. Suprised me a ton that Dallas is on there being that everybody there likes to keep up their image and that sort of thing. You'd think they'd be hiring personal trainers left and right.

Lot of poverty, though. Poverty and obesity stats go hand in hand.
