This subject cracks me up because there is always some American who tries to refute this fact. Granted, not everyone in America is overweight and you do see chubby people in Europe (yes, I have been on a few occasions) but the number of severely obese people in Europe pale in comparison to the amounts that you see here.

Many Americans are incredibly fat. You notice it more when coming back from other countries. This place is the Land of the Porkers. Whole families of huge blimps navigating the stores with greasy food sticking out of their wide, fat faces. Even some of the kids look like they're close to 200 pounds.

We're sure not underfed here in the USA. In fact, the people living off welfare are probably fatter than the rest of us.

I see now that some US airlines are charging $15 bucks to check in a suitcase. I wish they would instead just put a big digital scale to weigh everyone at the gates and charge them by the tonnage instead. Watch all the fatties line up and the crowd can guess the weight surcharge for each. Frankly, I'm getting tired of rolls of fat extending into half my seat when I travel.

I think the reason The South is fatter statistically is because of the foods people consume here. I could be wrong though. But statistically, The South is fatter. I do know that. (South Carolina is the 5th fattest.)

Airlines have the right to charge for two seats if someone is deemed obese. I think that only Southwest Airlines has actually carried this practice out though. I am not sure of the results.

We have a lot of fat people here, that's why. We drive everywhere, we have drive-thrus everywhere, we eat junk food and no one walks unless you live in one of our major cities. Miami, NYC, Chicago, DC or San Francisco. Everywhere else you either drive, or have few options to walk around.

If you for example go to Europe and ask them what they are thinking about when saying ''America'' ... 99% would say Fat people, fast food etc.

LOL! It's true
I hope you have fun in Canada where everyone is skinny, they use the metric system, there are only white people, have summer jobs, there are no trees and they increase gas prices regularly.

Moving to Canada, why? They use METRIC SYSTEM!!!

City free from non-white people

No summer jobs :(

Soo many trees in NJ

Increase the gas price!!

Remember these NJ? All threads started by you.
