Boulder ranks as thinnest U.S. city

One of the fittest states in the country is also home to three of the thinnest cities.

Boulder, Colorado, has the lowest obesity rate in the United States, at 12.4 percent, according to new data from Gallup. Denver and Fort Collins also ranked in the top 10 thinnest cities.

Huntington, West Virginia—where nearly two in five people are severely overweight—had the highest obesity rate at 39.5 percent. It’s been one of the most obese communities on the list for the past five years.

In 2010, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Healthy People program aimed to reduce obesity to 15 percent in each state. No state and only one city (Boulder) has achieved this goal, Gallup reported.

Nationwide, the U.S. obesity rate rose to 27.1 percent in 2013, the highest since tracking began in 2008.
