Ok, now I admit Michigan is nothing like a Phoenix or Miami in terms of the ladies but after reading the article, I’m curious. Did they do any real measurements at all? The article claims the study was done by:
So it’s cold here, we have massive suburban sprawl (I mean really, who wants to live in detroit-not even the demons go there), our commute times are long, and we have several chains of fast food stores. And this makes us fat? I’m curious is this an actual study or a random rip a list of cities with various qualities witchhunt?
This is just my own experience, but I wouldn’t doubt the results. In fact, just about any city in the northern Midwest (Milwaukee, Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis) seems interchangeable. A close second is the deep South, then a long dropoff to anyone else.
I recall an article on TV claiming Pittsburgh as the fattest. It was a couple of years ago but I think they used a more direct measure like highest per capita qualifying as overweight, obese and morbidly so. I lead a tour group a few years back where there were a couple and an unrelated woman from Pittsburgh. They were mammoth. Bigger than any of the other Americans we saw and most of them were pretty chunky too. But those guys from PA… sweet Jesus!
