SLIDESHOW: Study reveals 'fattest and laziest' cities in U.S.

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A new study ranks the "fattest and laziest" cities in America. Two of the cities in the top 25 are in Louisiana.

Obesity is a serious problem in the United States. Nearly 66% of the population is either overweight or obese.

However, many Americans work more hours per day than the rest of the world - close to 45 hours each week.

RoadSnacks.net compiled a list of cities that are overweight and lazy.

They looked at the most concentrated metro areas using this criteria.

  • Obesity rate
  • Unemployment rate
  • Number of fast food outlets per capita
  • Geo-located Tweets that mention #Obese or #Lazy

Remember, this latest research takes laziness into account.

For those scoring at home, according to the study, the skinniest and hardest working cities in America are:

  1. Bismarck, ND
  2. Midland, TX
  3. Sioux Falls, SD
  4. Lewiston, ID
  5. Peabody, MA
