Mississippi!

Congrats? Not really – Mississippi has won this prestigious title for SIX YEARS in a row.

Over one-third of Mississippians, or 34.9%, are obese. Louisiana came in a close 2nd, with 33.4% of its citizens as obese, and West Virginia tipped the scales with a 32.4% obesity rate.

On the flipside, Colorado now has the least portly population – at just 20.7%. Hawaii and Massachusetts came in second and third as the least-obese states.

Not on the list? See where your state falls here.
