5 Reasons You Should Move to S.F. If You Are Fat (NSFW)

Posted By on Wed, Jan 30, 2013 at 9:15 AM

We weren't that surprised to learn this morning that San Francisco is the No. 1 spot to live if you were hoping to shed that baby fat in 2013 -- it's a walkable city filled with steep, steep hills, endless hiking trails, and other thin, attractive people who make you want to be a better person.

But those are way too obvious. The less noticeable reasons this place will help plus-sized people are right below:

5. Nobody can afford food here, and even if we could, our local leaders won't really let us eat: No, that wasn't a slam on Ross Mirkarimi, really it wasn't. The food in S.F. is so damn good and so damn expensive that even upper-middle-class people can only afford to split a burrito. But we're guessing it won't be long before Eric Mar et al. will pass some asinine law banning sour cream and cheese in the Mission.

4. Public Nudity is a natural weight loss plan: San Francisco has been one of the only Bay Area cities that allows men and women to walk around our beautiful city pantless. If you've never caught sight of one of these nudists, believe us when we say, it will put you off your food for at least 24 hours.

3. How many studies do "they" need to do to prove that San Francisco is a city full of sluts? That means we like sex, and we like it all the time. And any decent doctor will tell you that sex is hard physical and psychological work.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
