The United States of Obesity

The obesity epidemic is sweeping across America, and CalorieLab recently mapped the percentage of the obese adult population for each state in the United States.

Colorado, Utah, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Montana have smallest percentages.

Missisippi, West Virginia, Louisiana, Arkansas and Alabama have the highest percentages.

The U.S. is divided East/West and North/South. Why do these differences exist? Wealth? Education? Religion? Political views? Cultural backgrounds? Climate? Unemployment?

  1. Fat Bastard

    I live in North Carolina and compared to say Vermonters or New Yorkers we are much bigger and greedier gluttons.

    The North is full of intellectuals who read boring stuff like nutrition and go to gyms. We good old boys are not metro-sexuals. We love food and why don't mind being fat.
