April Mayer for Amerisleep commented: “Since the pandemic began in 2020, COVID-19 has really highlighted the importance of health more than ever.

“With around three billion people in the world not being able to afford even the cheapest form of a healthy diet, this data offers a useful guide as to where people can maintain the healthiest lifestyle possible at an affordable price in the US.”

Many expats who live in Atlanta have shared their thoughts with social media user Lisa Maisel saying: “This city rocks, it’s awesome.”
