Ten States With Fewest Couch Potatoes, and Where Colorado Rests

We recently noted that Denver has been falling on the list of most fit cities.

But Colorado as a whole is still among the least lethargic states in the country — at least according to the amusing metric Estately has put together to determine which states have the most couch potatoes.

The key measurements involve hours per day spent watching TV, Laz-E-Boy retailers per capita, fast-food restaurants per capita, the least amount of exercise, the obesity rate, the fewest hours of work per day, greatest interest in soap operas on Facebook and Google searches for video-game rentals.

Scientific? Not exactly — but Colorado wound up among the ten with the fewest couch potatoes, so we're not complaining.

Count down the photo-illustrated bottom ten below, complete with Estately data — and to read the original post, click here.
