Obesity has long been a problem in the United States but it appears to be an extra large problem in the last couple of years.

When we aren’t piling on the pounds of sugar, we’re dumping all sorts of grease into our veins.

Check out our list of the 10 fattest states in America and if you live in one, tell us what you’re going to do about it.
