1) New Orleans

New Orleans was at the bottom of our list of America’s Healthiest Cities, with the study’s lowest scores for physical activity and lifestyle pursuits. Apparently the residents of “The Big Easy� believe in taking it easy, because their exercise scores were some of the lowest in the study. They also had the lowest score for consuming fruits and vegetables, but reported low rates of diabetes and hypertension.

Dude - I just saw that, and I was going to post the same thing. You beat me to the punch.

As a person who has traveled a good deal, I can say that in my experience the answer is an unequivocal YES! New Orleans is a culture that revolves around a good time. That tends to mean lots of extremely rich food, tons of drinking, smoking, partying, etc., and given the heat and mentality, very little exercise. There's a reason that LA and MS are always at the top of the biggest fat-a$$es in America studies. :)

Well that's a sham. You can always find someone running in New Orleans too... from the Police.
