(Undated-AP) -- Oklahoma City and Tulsa are on a fitness magazine's list of America's 25 fattest cities.

Oklahoma City is 13th, up from 23rd last year. Tulsa is 19th after not being on the list a year ago.

Men's Fitness has published a list of the top 25 fattest cities for six years. The report appears in the February issue, which hits newsstands this month.

The magazine looks at the 50 largest cities in 14 categories, such as air quality, climate, commute time, total number of fast-food and pizza restaurants, and number of health clubs and sporting goods stores.

Detroit is Number 1 on the fat cities list this year after being third last year. Last year's Number 1 fat city, Houston, is 2nd this year.
