They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and according to the financial website WalletHub, that includes 3 of the fattest cities in America.

The report says that 70% of Americans are overweight, and when the metrics are compared to reveal the Top 20 Fattest Cities, McAllen, San Antonio and Houston were ranked 4th, 14th and 17th.

Among the factors used in the comparison, obesity and overweight, weight-related health problems, and healthy environments. These are larger metro areas, which leaves me to wonder how we would fare here in Victoria.  Here’s a look at the Top 20.
