Let me just say right up front, I love me some South Carolina. So much so that I live there and I love the people, really never met anyone from the Palmetto State that I did not like. It’s true. Three South Carolina cities are among the most obese in the country. This according to a survey by Wallethub.
These three South Carolina cities are not alone. 40% of the American population is overweight. Part of the problem is cheap food costs much less as a general rule than healthier foods. You can feed a family of four at a fast food place much cheaper than if you bought ingredients for a healthy balanced low calorie meal.
Not only does obesity make you feel sluggish and cause problems with self confidence it can be very unhealthy. According to this survey, over 190 billion dollars is spent on obesity related health care.
According to a new survey by Wallethub, Columbia, South Carolina is the 10th most obese city in the country. The 15th most obese city in the country is Greenville, South Carolina. And the 17th most obese city in the country is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. To learn more about this study get details right here from Wallethub.
