I believe its raising in many country's weight per person because of junk food often cheaper than cooking healthy meals. Health food is more expensive here.

We are not on that list though. It should not be like that. They want a healthier

world they need to change that.

All is not lost. I think American can be #1 again if we just start eating more poi.

where the hell is canada lots of fat ***** there

Best Answer

OMG! But look at the top 7. People from those regions are enormous and for the US to be lumped with them it says a lot. Though I gotta say I'm surprised to see Kuwait and UAE on the list but it makes sense seeing their diets consist of mostly canned and frozen foods.

For your information, that is not a question *******.

Hard to imagine.



Those others must weigh a ton!

Best Answer

Hello look at the top on the list - it makes sense now. And all the fatties from there that live here are adding to our fat ranking.

Best Answer

How big are those competing nations?

Best Answer

good point! aren't the majority of those places quite small?

Best Answer

That's what I think.

Best Answer

It doesent matter it is the percentage - ok let me dumb it down so you can understand. If you had 2 rooms - room number one was filled with 50 violent people and 50 normal people you can safely say that the violence in that room is 50% -- now if you had a smaller room and 9 people were in that room were violent and only one is normal then the smaller room still has a 90% violence ranking. Understand now - or should I use building blocks to help U grasp this concept.

Best Answer

Those smaller nations have populations that are too insignificant. If you had 500 really small nations with 1 big one, that one nation is going to be easily pushed down in any list. That is, the odds of having two fat people in one room are pretty good. If you have five of those rooms, then the one room with 50 million people where 70% of them are fat will be down load on the list.

Best Answer

It is still the percentage that counts - and speaking of weighing down the list - how many of those fatties from other nations that live here are helping our nation tip the scales ?
