Columbus finished at No. 157, with a score of 36.31. Although the city tied for first for the most dieticians and nutritionists per capita, it was third lowest for healthy restaurants per capita.

Augusta ranked No. 171, with a score of 33.67. The city was had the fifth-highest rate of premature deaths, according to WalletHub.
