Is America really the fattest country?

Post by Soylent Blue on Wed Aug 10, 2011 2:05 am

I wouldn't say it's where the most fat people live. Maybe it's just the most materialistic. Anyway, is America being fat a fact or stereotype?

It's not exactly good news, but the United States is no longer the world's fattest nation. It turns out that the rest of the world is gaining on us, putting on more weight at a faster pace. This is especially true in Pacific island nations and in the Middle East, where Kuwait now represents the world's fattest industrialized nation. Both regions seem to be struggling to adapt to modern, sedentary lifestyles over a rather short period of time.

I hate it when people call americans fat. Yes, many of us are fat, but more of us arent.

I also hate when people use it in flame wars for no good reason. "You sound stupid, you must be one of those fat Americans."
