Forbes rates America's most sedentary cities

Ranking the most physically inactive cities through a provocative feature, “America’s Most Sedentary Cities,” Forbes magazine shines a spotlight on the environmental characteristics that help, or hinder, our ability to be physically active in everyday life. Combing through statistics for the 50 largest metropolitan areas, Forbes graded each city’s residents on three counts: body mass index, noted physical activity within the last 30 days and average number of hours of TV watched per week. Memphis topped the charts, followed by New Orleans, Las Vegas and Detroit.
