After being declared America’s Fattest City by Men’s Fitness magazine last year, Detroit has dropped to 3rd Fattest for 2005, behind Houston and Philly.

“First of all, congratulations … for getting down the list. I’m really proud of Detroit,” said Men’s Fitness Editor-in-Chief Neal Boulton. “Last time, you were the crown princes. You’re still on the list, but you’re breathing better air. Air quality went up in your town. That’s why we say the biggest losers on this list are the biggest winners, because they can lobby their mayors and governors to make it better.”
