Arlington Is Fat City (Fort Worth and Dallas Not Far Behind, So To Speak)

So Men’s Fitness thinks we’re fat, ranking Arlington, Fort Worth, and Dallas as the #2, #4, and #6 fattest cities in America. Maybe it’s genetic, but it’s hardly news for anyone who looks at their fellow patrons at the mall. But could this tidbit from the Star-Telegram be true?

No doubt this helps explain yet another Arlington phenomenon last year — a new restaurant opening on an average of every 9.6 days.

    This is the same publication that also said Arlington is the 4th best place in the nation to meet men. I guess this means all those single men are plump and fluffy.

  2. Anonymouse says:

    It’s kind of telling that a report supposedly ranking how fat a city is does not include one single category where a person’s weight is measured.

    Bogus, made up news that comes up every year.

    I’m far more surprised that Men’s Fitness ranks Arlington as a city. But then, they did rank “Pheonix” at #12 on the list.

    So Men’s Fitness says you’re fat, well I ain’t down with that.
