Columbus received a C+, which placed the city in between being one of the heaviest cities and being one of the leanest cities. MSN’s weight loss article explains the results and how they were calculated. The results were based on the percentage of individuals overweight, with type 2 diabetes, had not left the couch in a month, spent money on junk food, and ate fast food nine or more times in a month.
