According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 2017 and 2020, 41.9% of US adults aged ≥20 years had obesity. Obesity may be an even bigger problem depending on which US city is being considered. To determine where obesity most dangerously persists, WalletHub compared 100 of the most populated US metro areas across 19 key metrics including food and fitness, health consequences, obesity and overweight prevalence, and more.
