Columbus on the list of's most gluttonous cities

Gluttony is one of the Seven Deadly Sins, and some U.Scities are guilty as charged. Weighing in on this issue,, the site that houses everything food, has named America’s 20 Most Gluttonous Cities.

To digest this feature properly, note that gluttony is not just about being overweight. Other ingredients include the quantity and kind of food available to a population. So, to craft their list The Daily Meal compared the most recent data regarding the number of grocery stores per capita according to the U.S. Census Department, the per capita number of fast-food and full-service restaurants according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the adult obesity rates compiled by the Center for Disease Control.

Surprisingly, California—a reputedly health-conscious state—had the most cities on the list. Meanwhile, many locales in the food-loving South and Midwest didn’t make the cut. Here are some of the top 20 heavyweights:

· New York City, NY
· Detroit, MI
· Dallas, TX
· Miami, FL
· Las Vegas, NV
· Columbus, OH
· Chicago, IL
· San Diego, CA
· Sacramento, CA
· Riverside, CA
