    Houston was the fattest city for awhile, but that changed a while back. I don`t know if Texas was actually the fattest state. Mississippi was still the fattest last year and Colorado was still the skinniest.

    I live in TN. hm I`m not that surprised, although I had once read my county..city was one of the fittest in the nation. It seems as if the states that had the higher percentage were in the south. Southern food isn`t everything we eat here. We have a large number of people from different countries moving in here, and we eat their food as well. Maybe it becomes "fun" sometimes, because there is definitely not as much to do in the southern states most of the time. I`m a 17 year old living in Nashville and, unless you`re a local, there`s not an abundance of things to do. It`s not as if most have to work land, or cattle, soo. ? Living in the suburbs is confusing here. It`s like, we live in a "big" city, so people are often busy with their work and leisure, but it`s definitely not a small town people where it`s easy to form relationships with other people and do things with them. Downtown consists of museums and bars, it seems, and shopping gets old. Someone give me a bea

    Us fat coloradans are a scare few indeed.

    But seriously, there`s a lot of fat people here. I never thought we were high up, but I never would have imagined we were the lowest.

    If colorado is the skinniest state, sidewalks must be twice as wide in mississippi.

    and, yeah, crap in colorado is expensive. although, while vacationing in telluride, i was somehow able to buy a product that i like that seems to be discontinued everywhere else. holy crap! colorado is magic! it`s not shipping costs! grocers in colorado are f*cking wizards!

    I<- don`t eat a lot, because I`m bored. It just seems as if a majority in my state of TN does. I`m not even fat, I eat about 400-500 calories on weekdays, because I drink these shakes, and walk 4 miles every day. I don`t want to get fat! :|

    if you want to lose weight and you blame cajun food, look into the preparation of what you`re eating. it will scare you from eating anything other than prepackaged food again, at least while you`re in louisiana. my cousin ran over a gator and took it home to make stew.

    Fat people disgust me. Their cankles, and jelly rolls, and the way some of them wear clothes way too tight, and of course how the belly fat just oozes out of the shirt line. Don`t forget how most of the time they smell because they can`t clean in between all their cracks. Go to a gym America! For god sakes, it`s embarrassing.

    Colorado may be the thinnest, but the rate of obesity is still pretty high there. If 3 out of 10 people being obese is a high rate (about what Mississippi has), then how is 2 out of 10 people much better (about what Colorado has)?

    Oh my god, your leanest state is almost fatter than the fattest country in Europe (Britain, at 23%).

    Stop stealing food from 3rd world countries.

    I`m from Mississippi, and it doesn`t surprise me that it is the fattest state. There are a lot of fat people here, I`m just glad I`m not one of them.

    I can`t wait to get out of here, not because of the fat people but because it sucks here. Ponyrunswild, small towns aren`t less boring than cities.

    Also, davymid, most of those starving children from other countries can`t eat the things we do over here in America. Their stomachs can`t handle the fat, greasy fast food.

    Every Tuesday at 6:00PM at Jack Quinn`s Tavern in Colorado Springs, around 600 runners get together to do a 5k on a trail near downtown... for fun. It`s events like this that keep us Coloradans thin! Probably a combination of culture, sunshine and great outdoor activities.

    Anglefan, I am one of the said people that claimed not to be obese. I can not prove to you that I am not obese unless I meet you in person, because any pictures or video uploaded as proof could easily be edited and therefor could not be trusted.I seriously doubt that I will ever meet you so all I can give you is my word, and the last time I checked 5`9` and 145 lbs. isn`t obese.I might be mistaken though.

    Also, I do not sit on the computer all day. I sit in a chair facing the monitor. I spend maybe 1-3 hours on the internet a day. If you spend all day sitting on the computer, then I would suggest that you go outside and socialize with people. believe me. It can be fun, and you might even make some of these things called "friends."

    Pony:

    Please tell me you weren`t serious when you said you only at 400/500 calories a day o.o;.
    Even if America`s fat, that`s waaaay too low... like right down to the point where it becomes unhealthy.
    A regular person uses about 2000 a day you know o.o...

    Either it was before this or it`s more current, but I thought Oklahoma was the fattest state...

    But you know something`s wrong with your country when 1/5 of your state population being obese is considered good (Green).

    "Fat people disgust me. Their cankles, and jelly rolls, and the way some of them wear clothes way too tight, and of course how the belly fat just oozes out of the shirt line. Don`t forget how most of the time they smell because they can`t clean in between all their cracks. Go to a gym America! For god sakes, it`s embarrassing."

    /agree.

    I like fat people, because it impresses the ladies when i squat the fattest kid on my team with ease.

    "xD I live in PA, it`s not that bad really :]"

    about 38 states are too "fat". this is really sad that only 8 are in the "lean" catigory.
