Healthiest (And Unhealthiest) Cities In America

While we all can eat better and move more to get in shape, it’s pretty apparent that where we live can also play a huge role in how healthy we are. So, where are people the healthiest in the U.S.?

Well, WalletHub set out to determine just that, looking at 174 of the most populated U.S. cities across 40 key indicators of good health, breaking things down into four categories -  Health Care, like the cost of a doctors visit, Food, such as fruit and vegetable consumption, Fitness and Green Space.

With all these factors in mind, San Francisco, California was dubbed the healthiest city in America, scoring an overall 72.81 out of 100, and coming in first in food and green spaces, and pretty high on fitness as well.
