It was recently reported that for the first time in history, there are now more overweight than malnourished people in the world. Here are the leading obese states in The US.

Obesity, it may be useful to repeat, is not a euphemism for being overweight. It means being so fat that one’s health is affected. You are defined as obese if you have a body mass index of 30 or over (with a bmi of between 25 and 30, you are merely overweight). The US is the most overweight nation in the world, with over a quarter of the total population being obese. See Strange Maps for more interesting maps.
