El Pasoans Fat, Inactive and Diabetic
The results are in, and while El Paso isn't a top ten Fattest City in America, we're still pretty fluffy, though.
According to Wallethub's 2020 Most Overweight and Obese Cities in the U.S. list, El Pasoans have collectively gone from 2019's more-to-love #29 ranking to this year’s plus-sized #31 spot.
The study also found that diabetes lurks around every corner here. Per the financial website's voodoo science, El Paso has the highest percentage of diabetic adults in the country.
And as you may have heard, diabetes is no bueno. Complications include heart disease, blindness, and the inability to fit into a Mini Cooper.
But wait, there's more. The data also determined El Pasoans are not doing enough squats. In fact, we’re doing diddly squat. According to the study, El Paso has some of the highest percentage of residents who are both "obese & overweight," and "physically inactive" -- which is just a nice way of saying we're a city full of fat, lazy people.
Good to know I’m not the only one who can no longer tell where my butt ends and the couch begins. But in my defense, Netflix ain't gonna watch itself. Now, where’s the remote?
