I was thinking, is America really the fattest country right now? I would not be suprised if it was. Everywhere I go, people are ether fat or chunky. I feel like I stand out alot here, becuase I only weigh 100 lbs. I think if people are blaming fast food places, then why do they eat there? It's not like we are forcing them to eat a big mac every damn day! Plus, nobody cares about their weight it seems.

I want your guys opinions on this one. I can see that alot of you Offspring fans are everywhere.

America probably is the fattest country in the world. Britain is supposedly the fattest country in Europe.

It could be the fattest country, but fat people are in all countries even in Spain. And they're becoming more and more, I think that's because of the fast food or their habits of eating food which is not healthy, but Mc Donalds hasn't got all the fault. I think it could also be because they don't practice any sports. :confused:

America just got fatter ahead of time. It didn't have the burden that WW2 gave to the rest of Europe. Already know parts of England are fatter than parts of the US though. Personally I'll laugh at the day that Europe passes or becomes equal to the US. Snobby bastards.

America is actually the 9th fattest country, the first being Nauru.

Fatness in places like Nauru and the Samoas is all a result of genetic disorders caused by inbreeding, which naturally happens from time to time on relatively small remote islands.

In all honesty I had never even heard of Nauru till I looked it up a couple minutes ago.

That's an opinion, not a fact.

If you want to have that opinion, why don't you go back to Russia?

It probably won't happen for a long, long time. European countries are becoming alot more caution and aware of fat content in foods that they eat. Also poorer European countries have a large population of people who aer unable to afford excessive amounts of food, whereas America is overall the richest country in the world.

Per, people in Europe just don't eat the same as in the US. I'm pretty sure they're not going to pass up the US. In the US, people complain about the lack of fast food and whine for more to be built... here, there are probably 1/4 or even less fast food places, and people don't want more built. And people here walk and bike SO much more... not in all of Europe, of course, but in all the places I've been they do. Americans drive everywhere. (Oh, and Per, I was right about there being more cars in the US. Everyone has a car there, and I only know one person here who has one).

One thing you have to take into consideration is the sheer size of America any, that wouldn't help with averages.

Vlad, what is the obesity rate in Russia? I would imagine it's not as high as the states, despite the Russian propensity for unhealthy food.

Bri, Europeans talk a lot about eating healthy. But that's only students. People who work full time, or who work and are students just don't have the time/energy to eat healthy, and often can save money with fastfood. That's supposed to be the reason behind the obesity problem in Scotland.

...but then what creates the difference here: In the US, it's mostly the college students who eat fast food all the damn time due to having little time, and adults eat better than students. There's always SUCH a huge concentration of fast food places around campus due to this.

There are of course fat college students, this however is not where the concentration of fat people in the states...

There seem to be many more obese college students than after college, though. I don't know. The fact still remains that there is a greater concentration of fast food places around campuses.

speaking of college students: i think my school simply does not admit people whose BMI exceeds 22 or so. i know 3 fat girls who go to my school. THREE. everyone else is skinny as all hell.

must be the blow/red bull diet...

I like, never see fat people. Except fat Mexican mamis with their babies in cheap grocery stores and the occasional jolly fat guy. I think they're like super conservative gay-hating republicans and hide in the boonies or people who deny global warming and the holocaust or scientologists or Catholics. I never see them either. But word on the street is that they're out there.

THREE. everyone else is skinny as all hell.I knew of less fat people at my college. For a couple years, I'd see two on campus, and I remembered them because they were the out-of-place fat chicks. Every once in a while my friends and I would make a trip to Wal-Mart to stock up on something and it was a shock.

As for biking/driving, the American city was designed around the car and grew hand-in-hand with it, and modern conveniences are designed to ensure that nobody has to get any more exercise than they absolutely must, so people have to find time to exercise or pay for it in pounds. Not to mention the modern food thing.

Samoan nations are the fattest by a long shot.

No they're not. Have you ever eaten Samoan food? Mutton flaps. Suckling pig. Suckling pig stuffed with mutton flaps. You can taste the palpitations.

edit ; I think Fiji just banned mutton flaps because so many people were getting so fat they exploded or something.

Yeah, i agree. I've never actually tasted Samoan but i saw some once. Damn that shit looks beefy. The dude (non somoan) eating it was full after a few bites.

Samoans are colossal, and not just fat colossal. They're all 47 feet tall. Somoans should all serve their purpose and become gladiators.

But saying that, most people over here are fat nowadays. And companies are also making their food products lower in fat etc etc, just because people are getting fatter! What about the people who don't want to gain some weight!?
