Not the richest but not as poor as the Southern states on the list.

And over consumption of alcoholic beverages. Beer, wine, and hard liquor are killers of diets, and have lots of empty calories, not to mention the other health risks. Notice, I said OVER consumption. Everything in measure.

It is more of a lifestyle thing in CO, and access to outdoor a activities, and having an active lifestyle.

Bull. If you're not gluten intolerant (and that's a small percentage of the population), there's nothing wrong with whole wheat. I'm 6'3 and 160 lbs. I LOVE food but I manage it. I hiked 12 hard miles in the mountains on Monday to justify my avocado and egg bagel breakfast.

20% is still a very high percentage. I hope all the state's are able to drastically reduce their rates soon.

It goes beyond being gluten intolerant, as modern wheat is certainly a big contributor to a host of health problems in the US ranging from: the obesity epidemic, causing autoimmune triggers to be activated, acting as an appetite stimulant, and causing inflammation of joints in addition to brain fog as well as digestion issues for many that DON'T have gluten intolerance. If you examine the obesity curve in the US, it took off directly after modern wheat was injected into the food supply in the mid 1980s. It has been all downhill from there from a health standpoint for many as a result. It's too bad so many doctors can't connect the dots, but they are often in collusion with the big pharmaceutical companies to "treat" the problem- not "solving" the problem.

No it's not, or people who work physical labor would be thinner than all the Colorado perpetual adolescents playing dress up on the weekends.

Also, Colorado now is fatter than anywhere was 10 years ago, despite more yuppie play-place nonsense.

Have you ever lived in Colorado? It is a mecca of outdoor sports like biking, skiing, hiking, etc. It is almost a religion with some people there.

People living off junk and they get fat, not that hard to figure out. Sure you can eat a junkfood diet and be slim and trim, but that is an exception.

And these blasted hi-calorie drinks, stop it, drink water.
