America’s Fattest City

Houston Texas, is the fourth largest city in the United States and is located in a state where size most certainly matters. Texas is bigger than Germany, the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and Belgium put together. “Everything is bigger in Texas” is the saying in Texas and for some that extends to their waistline too.

In the lone star state big people have given Houston a dubious status, it’s Americas fattest city. Obesity here has now been called public enemy number one by the medical profession. It is being considered an epidemic with a staggering two thirds of Texans being overweight and one third being classed as obese, however with this being said there are many of people who have no intention of slimming down.

So just how have these larger than life Texans ended up being so big? and what is it about Texas that produces the fattest people in the fattest country in the world?
