Too bad it's only 16 cities. But it let me check my theory that cities are less obese than the rest of their states, from the "Mapping North America" post earlier in July.

Seattle 21.2 Wash 24.5
SF 19.1 Calif 23.1
Boston 19.0 Mass 20.9
Atlanta 25.6 GA 27.4
Philly 22 PA 25.7
Chicago 24.2 Ill 25.3

The top 4 are Creative Class cities.
All but Atlanta are in the top 10 for walkability on the recent post.
SF & Boston would be dark green, close to Colorado on the state map.

I assume its obvious the numbers are % obese in both cases.
