A ranking of the most overweight cities in the United States of America just came out and one city in Texas is at the top of the list.

A wallethub group studied a bunch of stats on obesity from all over the United States of America and found that the top 10 cities all have one thing in common.

4 Americans in 10 now fit the technical medical definition of obese. That's not what the top 10 cities have in common though. It's where those cities are that unites them ...

Of the 100 American cities named most obese, the top 10 are all in the south and numero uno is here in the lone star state. See the whole list here.

McAllen, Texas earned the dubious honor of being number 1 and El Paso is on the top 100 list along with a few other Texas cities.

McAllen, TX, ranks as the most overweight city in the country, because it has the largest percentage of adults who are obese, at 45%, with an additional 31% overweight but not obese. McAllen also has the second-highest share of obese teenagers and the second-highest share of obese children. - wallethub
