  • Obesity by country (from funny pic thread)

    Are Americans really fatter than other westernized countries?

    I was in a bar at an airport talking to a guy from the UK, and he asked me where all the fat people are, saying that America it stereotyped as being fat. Not that an international airport is a valid sample of Americans, but I looked around the restaurant and said there are a few in here. He said that that was typical though.

    I think that any society that is pretty rich and therefore food is relatively cheap, there ar going to be more obese people... Americans just tend to be ones making documentaries about it being a health problem, a marketing problem, etc.
    Here is a page with estimates of contries' obesity rates which looks well documented. I'm surprised that the US doesn't lead the world by more than it does. Maybe this page isn't accurate...hmmm.

    I thought I would narrow this down for us fat Americans.


    Here are the fattest cities in the U.S. (according to one source)

    I am having trouble finding data on what is the fattest State in the U.S. Some data suggests Alabama. Other Data suggests Texas. Yet other data suggests Mississippi or West Virginia.

        Yes, the problem is obviously the tables with food on them.
