Posted on

Maybe it is our great weather for hiking, cycling, horseback riding, camping, fishing and skiing. Maybe it is the green chili. But we were not surprised to learn that “Men’s Health” magazine ranked Albuquerque as one of “America’s Leanest Cities.”

To create the list, the editors of MEN’S HEALTH analyzed the following data:

  • The percentage of residents who are overweight
  • The percentage of residents who are obese
  • The percentage of residents who have Type 2 diabetes
  • The percentage of residents who have no physical activity (CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System)
  • The percentage of residents who eat fast food nine or more times per month (Mediamark Research)

Here are the top 10 “Leanest Cities in America”:

  1. San Francisco, California
  2. Burlington, Vermont
  3. Washington D. C.
  4. Seattle, Washington
  5. Austin, Texas
  6. Albuquerque, New Mexico
  7. Portland, Oregon
  8. Cincinnati, Ohio
