Men's Fitness magazine has named Salt Lake City the nation's fittest city in its annual ranking.

Following Salt Lake on the list are Colorado Springs (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/us/colorado/el-paso-county-%28colorado%29/colorado-springs-PLGEO100101101011261.topic), Colo.; Minneapolis; Denver; and Albuquerque, N.M. The magazine says Salt Lake earned the distinction because of its park space and athletically motivated residents.

The magazine named Miami the ``Fattest City in America,'' followed by Oklahoma City (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/us/oklahoma/oklahoma-county/oklahoma-city-PLGEO100101101011251.topic), San Antonio, Las Vegas and New York.

That is Bologna.. I happen to live in San Antonio which was rated number 3 and I can tell you that 8/10 people here are grossly overweight. Nothing but Tex Mex restaraunts and fast food. We have 6 or 7 Burger joints within a 2 mile radius. I have lived in Miami as well and neither compare.

I am a bodybuilder, and have been to gyms in Florida which are packed with people and then in San Antonio there's maybe 10-20 people in the gym during the busy hours.

I can assure you SA has the most amount of overweight people.

What? I have been there 3 times and even commented that at 5' 9" and 200 lbs (in pretty decent shape) that I was the fattest person in South Florida at the time! I thought that due to the heat/humidity that actually curbed the appetite. I don't buy it.

Men's Fitness magazine needs to name itself "Most clueless magazine in America."

According to a BMI scale I am considered fat, I'm 6'1 220 with 10% BF.
