Wallet Hub ranks everything and their latest survey is a ranking of America's most overweight and obese cities. I was not surprised that the entire top 20 was comprised of Souther cities. There's that deep fried everything down South, that comfort food, and that delicious BBQ. But Iowa? We have become quite a Midwestern Foodie destination in Des Moines, and apparently, it shows. Des Moines/West Des Moines ranks at 47 on this list! We are #33 when it comes to straight statistics on amount of overweight people! I thought all the biking we do and hiking through trails would over componsate for the eating, apparently, not enough!
Maybe it's all the Iowa State Fair deep fried food consumption!
