Good God !! A Picture Weighs a Thousand Pounds... And Then Some.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put out their annual obesity statistics this week, and the news is still bad. America is fat, and it's not getting any better. South carolina is not Number 1, but it's nothing to be proud of. Generally, the Southern states lead the way, with Mississippi leadign the way. Colorado had the lowest percentage of obese people.
It's no surprise why. The Southern diet is not conducive to a thin society. Fried foods, BBQ and that yummy Sweet Tea and Pecan Pie definitely pack on the pounds. It took me ten years to figure out how to eat around here, and I still could stand to lose 20 pounds.
