Review of Fayetteville, Arkansas


Arkansas is fattening
Star Rating - 3/27/2018
I have been gone from Arkansas for quite a few years now. I lived there for several years, years ago. Prior to moving there, my weight was slightly above a healthy range. While there, it increased by 35 pounds. It is now back to where it was prior to moving there. Arkansas has one of the highest obesity rates in the country. The people I am around now are into fitness, healthy eating, bicycles, hiking, etc. Very few of the restaurants here feature deep fried foods. Being around healthy people and healthy influences tends to make you do the things they do to stay healthy. When you drive around and see giant fitness centers all over the place, and most of the people you associate with have a healthy weight, it naturally tends to influence the way you behave, eat, exercise, etc.
