There are some fat states out there - NH, not so much


The fattest states in the country are in, and New Hampshire ain't half bad.

NH ranked 28th of 50 states in a new study conducted by WalletHub.

According to the study, the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that helped analysts compare the 50 states and the District of Columbia ranged from “percentage of adults and children who are overweight and obese” to “sugary-beverage consumption among adolescents.”

The study was able to find the prevalence of obesity, prevalence of overweight individuals, the unhealthy habits, and the food and fitness rank for all 50 states.

In 2015, about 81.6 million Americans were completely inactive. In addition to factors such as genetics, emotional instability and sleeplessness, lack of physical activity is one of the leading causes of obesity.
