If the South would eat less fried stuff and drink less sweet tea, maybe it would lose some weight. That said, I love Southern cuisine, I'm drooling think about that incredible restaurant I had dinner at in Paducah, Kentucky last year on my way to Chattanooga, Tennessee.

not just fried food, traditional southern food calls for a lot of butter and they also use bacon grease and ham hocks for many dishes... I.E. if you go to a southern place and get green beans or black eyed peas, it is probably going to have some chunks of ham fat in it. This was probably fine when you just needed a lot of extra calories as far as obesity was concerned back in the day (but probably not internally) ...the food and current lifestyles do not mix too well.
