WalletHub, a personal finance website that launched in early August 2013, published its report on 2019's Fattest Cities in America on Tuesday.

McAllen, Texas, has the highest share of obese adults and highest share of physically inactive adults, which grants it the title of the fattest city in the US.
Shreveport, LA comes in second place and Memphis, TN comes in third.
The report compared 100 of the most populated US metro areas across 19 key metrics. The data combines a number of aspects such as share of obese adults, share of overweight children, as well as projected obesity rates by 2030.
The report was published in order to raise awareness about and call attention to the communities where weight-related problems are most relevant.
On their YouTube page, WalletHub summarized the results, showing the top 10 fattest cities.
