CalorieLab has just released their 2006 Fattest US States list & it looks like the South wins again.Â Mississippi has taken the cake, as it were, for the fattest state in 2006.
Based on a three year statistical average, 29.5% of the population of MississippiÂ is obese.Â And if you include the overweight population of the gulf state, over 2/3 of the state’s residents are overweight or obese.Â
Following close behind Mississippi are other southern state: Â Alabama, West Virginia, Louisiana & Kentucky. Colorado is the leanest state, must be that elevation, followed by Montana & New England states.
I think we need to get down to Mississippi & swap the Moon Pies & RC Cola for carrots & peas.
