19% of the adults in my state are considered “obese”, yet we’re still considered the skinniest state in the nation. No wonder weight loss is such a large and growing industry! If almost 1 in 5 Coloradans are obese, and we’re the skinny state, what does that mean for the rest of the country?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted the survey and put Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee at the other end of the scale with more than 30% of adult residents considered obese. Check out your state’s obesity ranking!
Some of the things that pop into my mind when I see numbers like these are:
1. high fructose corn syrup
3. refined grains
I wish it was less of a “weight-loss” industry and more of a “get healthy” industry!
