In a January post, we noted that four Colorado cities were listed among the thirty most active in a survey from HealthGrove.

And while activity doesn't always translate to thinness, it apparently has in this case.

WalletHub recently set out to rank the fattest cities in America — but in the process, it also collected data on those at the opposite end of the scale.

Of the 100 metro areas analyzed, two in Colorado finished in the bottom ten.

Which, in this case, is a very good thing.

Continue to count down the photo-illustrated ten thinnest metro areas, complete with WalletHub data. That's followed by some specific facts and figures about Denver, plus the methodology, which explains how the rankings were determined. To see the original post, click here.
