The stats are really, really sad — but at least we're still the best, right?

Man, cheeseburgers are the best. With fries? Come on, that sounds incredible. Who's hungry? We should split a pizza after this. 

Anyway, the Center for Disease Control dropped their recent findings about the obesity rate in America, and it ain't good. There's a ton of people with too much poundage all across the country, and that's causing a ton of problems.

But in lighter news, we're the best! Colorado has the highest percentage of healthy folks, ranking in at 21.3% of adults. That's still about one in five adults that are at risk for dying early. Not great, but still a shitload better than any other state. 

We even get our own color! (We're not counting Massachusetts, because it sucks.)

The South looks pretty grim, but if you've ever been to a Popeyes Chicken, it starts to make sense.

Here are a few more depressing stats from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website:

No state had a prevalence of obesity less than 20%.
5 states and the District of Columbia had a prevalence of obesity between 20% and <25%.
23 states, Guam and Puerto Rico had a prevalence of obesity between 25% and <30%.
19 states had a prevalence of obesity between 30% and <35%.
3 states (Arkansas, Mississippi and West Virginia) had a prevalence of obesity of 35% or greater.
The Midwest had the highest prevalence of obesity (30.7%), followed by the South (30.6%), the Northeast (27.3%), and the West (25.7%).

Kinda makes us hungry. Is there Popeyes in Colorado?
