We've done it again!  Boise's one of the top metro areas in the U.S. for being fit and thin.

 

It's National Nutrition Month and with Americans spending over $315 Billion annually on obesity related medical treatment, Wallethub has taken a look at 2016's Fattest Cities In America.  Luckily, we're on the backside of that poll.  (Pun intended)  :)

 

Boise ended up taking 3rd Thinnest metro area in America.  Not bad!  Here's how we break down in a number of different areas.  The higher the number, the better we're doing.
