Here’s one more reason why we all should move to Boulder.

Boulder again has the lowest obesity rate in the nation, according to Gallup and Healthways.

Boulder is one of three Colorado communities to be listed among the top 10.

“This may be because Colorado is known for its outdoor spaces and activities, which attracts active residents and encourages residents to live healthy lifestyles,” reads a poll description.


Residents of Huntington-Ashland, an area spreading into Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio, aren’t so lucky. It’s listed as the most obese community.

Give credit to Boulder. It’s a lovely place with a lot going on.

Denver/Aurora was listed as the least obese major city.
