That's what I'm thinking too. I live right at the AL/FL state line, and I know for sure that there isn't that much of a difference, at least not from what I see.

Is there really that big of a difference going from Colorado to Kansas?

You know, some people have a nasty habit of ridiculing the physical appearance of people from Pittsburgh. This map is a pair of shotgun bullets straight into the heart of their arguments. And no, I'm not calling 911 either.

Surprised by Texas. San Antonio has been one of the top 10 fattest cities in the country numerous times, yet on the map the county it's located in is white.

That's probably because the "fat cities" criteria has more to do with crap like the number of chain restaurants per capita and other such stuff that doesn't necessarily correlate to a person's actual weight.

The white areas are all less than 26.2%, which is still high. The map would be more accurate if the smallest % wasn't so high.

Then it shades the areas that are greater than 26.3% and the ranges aren't that big.
