WalletHub breaks down key indicators for 150 of the most populated cities in the United States to find most and least healthy metros. 

The cities were graded based on four areas: health care, food, fitness, and green space. Health care included metrics like the number of family doctors per capita and premature deaths. Food data included the number of farmers markets, dietitians, and obesity rates. Fitness metrics examined the number of fitness clubs, weight loss centers, and recreation leagues per capita and green space tallied acres of parkland, hiking and bike trails and walkable communities.

San Francisco was deemed the healthiest city followed by Salt Lake City, Scottsdale, Ariz., and Portland, Oregon. Detroit ranked the least healthy followed by Brownsville, Texas and Memphis, Tenn.
