10 Best Metros for Weight Loss
January 10, 2013
Those who have a New Year’s resolution to lose weight might want to move to one of these cities.
Trulia recently ranked 100 metros based on a variety of weight-loss factors, such as the number of “slow food” places (defined as supermarkets and food marts as opposed to “fast food” places); shorter commutes; walkability; highest number of gym memberships; availability of outdoor activities; and highest number of weight-loss and diet centers.
Taking into account all of these factors, here are the 10 best cities for weight loss:
- San Francisco
- Fairfield County, Conn.
- Long Island, N.Y.
- Lake County-Kenosha County, Ill.-Wis.
- New York, N.Y.-N.J.
- Middlesex County, Mass.
- Peabody, Mass.
The worst metro for weight loss? Las Vegas.
