Mississippi is Number One

Adult obesity is on the rise in 31 states, and no states have experienced a drop in obesity, according to a study from Trust for America's Health.
Mississippi topped the list of the fattest states, with the highest adult obesity rates for the third year in a row. More than 30% of the adult population in the state is obese. Colorado was ranked the “leanest” state with an obesity rate of 17.6%. No state has reached the Health and Human Services department goal of reducing the prevalence of adult obesity to 15% in every state by 2010.
