As, because of my diet, I am now effectively two-dimensional, I look at this map (thanks to the great Finkelstein blog) with a distinct sneer of superiority. What on earth are they eating in Mississipi where a third of the people are obese? But, equally, what are they eating in Colorado, the only dark green state with a mere 18.4 per cent obesity rate? Mind you, that still sounds pretty high. I would guess Florida is only at 23 per cent because the fatties we send over to Orlando don't stay for long. The big question is: which part of 'carbohydrates make you fat' don't these people understand?
