OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A national magazine ranks Oklahoma City and Tulsa as two of the most unfit cities in the nation.

The woman's magazine ``Self'' analyzed 49 criteria, including access to health care, death and disease rates, the availability of gyms and jogging trails and the number of fast-food outlets.

Tulsa ranked 99th out of 100 and Oklahoma City ranked 98th. The only city ranked worse was Cincinnati.

Last month, ``Men's Health'' magazine conducted a similar survey, ranking Tulsa 79th and Oklahoma City 86th.

Poor eating habits and lack of exercise were major factors in both surveys.
