People in all 50 US states are overweight or fat. This is not a secret. It was found by the CDC that more than 40% of people in the U.S. are fat. Most of these 30 towns are in the South. Right away, this stands out.
Many people in the south are overweight, but it’s not just because of the food. As a whole, the 100 most popular metro areas in the country were ranked by WalletHub in three groups: Obesity and Overweight; Health Consequences; and Food & Fitness. They looked at 19 things, like how many adults, teens, and kids are overweight or obese, how many people have health problems like diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure because of their weight, and how easy it is to get to parks and good food.
WalletHub says that the McAllen, Edinburg, and Mission, Texas metro area is the fattest in the country for 2023 because of these reasons. That spot is second for Health Effects and fifth for Being Overweight or Obese. Columbia, South Carolina, is tenth on the list, which isn’t too far down.

Which U.S. state has the most overweight people?
Getting fat is quickly becoming the standard in the United States. People will quickly call this “fat-shaming” if you say it. I’m not here to tell you to lose weight. It’s not my job to tell you if you’re fat or not. You should tell your doctor about all of those things. But I’m telling you the truth. Even worse, the most recent numbers from the CDC show that more than 70% of people in the U.S. (20 and up) are either overweight or obese. Rates for kids and teens are also going up, but they are still lower. What’s the point? There is a lot of money lost on health care every year because of fat, according to the CDC.
Why is this happening? People don’t move around enough, which is a bad thing. Another reason is genetics, having unstable emotions, or not being able to sleep. WalletHub looked at 31 key factors from all 50 states and the DC to find the places where overweight and obese people are most likely to stay unhealthy. This set of data shows how many obese and overweight people there are, how many sugary drinks kids drink, and how much health care costs are related to obesity. Also, North Carolina is one of the places with the most overweight people, which is not good. We’re almost at the top of these lists.
