I wanna see the rates of morbidly obese people now as opposed to people who are just a little chubby, which this chart is full of. it just makes you think of all those people that need a seat for each butt-cheek and look like they could roll around all day if you gave them a little nudge.

Fact of the matter is, the older you get, the slower your metabolism becomes, but your stomach doesn't slow down the hormones that tell the brain you're hungry. Not only that but we sit on our asses all day while we work or go to school, calorie burn is just not there, sometimes not even because we're lazy.

It's interesting how regional the numbers are, but it does make sense. Those numbers aren't going to magically drop anytime soon either. If having overweight friends increases your chances of obesity, then imagine what 1 out of 3 people in the state does. (I'm looking at you Mississippi)

Not surprised that the southeast has the most obese people. Traditional southern food is fattening.

"Wow, the South's really weighing us down, huh?"

Um, no. We're all weighing us down. I'm from Colorado, but it's still close to 1 in 5. Why is that something to be proud of?

Boredhero78, come to Europe, You'll like it. Probably be surprised at how nice, welcoming and varied it is. I was when I went to the US. Don't believe in stereotypes, they are seldom true. Xenophobia does not help anyone, talk to the locals and be happy in your life, don't hate.

"most Europeans embellish our culture on a daily basis. You know the foods you eat, movies you watch, music you listen to, ECT. Most of it is probably thought of, and created in the states with all the revenue splashing back in our laps. Kind of makes you look stupid when you guys constantly slam on US with a Coke in your hand, and an Xbox 360 in the next room with a call of duty game in the disk slot. But yeah, whatever, Europe is so much better right? I guess that is why so many people immigrate to the US because, cold, snobby, Europeans countries are just so f*ing awesome."

Fair enough dude, In the meantime by your own logic, can you please stop using our inventions: language, computers, science, technology, medicine, western culture, democracy, internet. Obviously you've not visited Europe, it is as luxurious as the US. Don't think you speak for most of America either so why not wise up? We all have individual opinions, Europe is not cold and snobby, it is not a

@sarph...One thing you guys fail to consider is the sheer amount of fat in America compared to Europe. I mean the average obesity rate might be equal, but there are so many more millions of obese people in America that you'll have to excuse the use of stereotypes, not to mention not be offended by it. Also, if you changed from obesity rate to simply overweight, the numbers in America would SKYROCKET compared to Europe. So stop pretending you're not fat America, you're only fooling yourselves.

The population of the EU is about 500 million, the population of the US is 300 million. From what i could find, the obesity rate for the US is around 35%, and the EU is closer to 25%...so even with a higher rate of obesity, the US has fewer obese people...so, both parts of your argument are wrong.

There have been so many of these posts, you'd think Fancy would get "your" vs. "you're" straight by now.
A map isn't a reason "why" Americans are fat. Caption fail.

So why do smokers have to pay higher insurance rates than the obese??? As a former hospital healthcare worker I will tell you our hospitals are not full of smokers. They are full of fat people!!!

Doesn't really surprise me. I just don't like it when obese people who constantly eat, and never exercise, act like they're victims.

There's an obese girl who sits next to me in one of my classes, and I'm friendly to her, but she's constantly complaining about her weight. "I hate being fat, I can't fit my fat butt in these chairs, you don't know how LUCKY you are to be skinny, being fat sucks" It irritates me to no end, especially when she opens up her school bag, filled with candy and snacks to keep her occupied, and she'll sit there and eat the entire hour and a half, complaining the whole time about being fat. And then when she's eaten an entire family-sized bag of chips, a Pepsi, and a ton of candy, she'll lean over and ask me if I have any food because she's still wants to eat. Ugh.
