UNDATED (AP) _ Tulsa is one of the fittest cities in the nation and Oklahoma City is one of fattest according to a survey by Men's Fitness magazine.

Oklahoma City is rated the 17th fattest city after being the 21st most fat city last year.

Men's fitness editor Neal Boulton says the survey took into account additional factors this year that affected some city's turnaround from fat to fit. The factors include the amount of public park space, access to health care, air quality and the number of fast-food restaurants.

Baltimore rates as the most fit city in the nation after ranking as the 25th most fat a year ago while Chicago is considered the most fat city in the magazine's survey.
