For Fat, Head to Mississippi

Aside from being one of the hardest states to spell, Mississippi is also the fattest state. At least according to the folks over at CalorieLab, who calculated the rankings based on the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System database maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Around 33.8 percent of Mississippi’s adult population is obese. The thinnest state is Colorado, where only 19.2 percent of the population is obese. Not surprisingly, the biggest pocket of “thin” states is in the Western half of the country. California, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, New Mexico and Wyoming all had less than 26 percent obesity.

I can’t help but thinking this superficial study is a poke at Scottish Susan Boyle and the world’s obsession with her looks. Can’t we all just take a chill pill instead of a diet pill and stop spazzing over weight for a sec? [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »
