I've always thought of the south as being the healthiest. You see all those perfectly conditioned football players and all those slim trim people at the beach. They must be eating a lot down there. It probably is something simple like what they eat like barbecued ribs fried chicken ham hocks and those big hardee burgers. A perfect climate like they are reputed to have should encourage them to get out and exercise.
All those movies that are set in the south have slim trim people. It must all be a fairy tale.

I've lived in Mississippi all my life and no one in my family is obese.I am 6 feet tall and weigh 156 pounds,and have been within 5 pounds of that weight for the last 40 years.The problem is welfare.If one will take note of the obese people here they will see that most are on welfare and get EBT cards.If one gets free food and don't have to work ,they will get fat.Let me back up on that ,it's not free food . The working taxpayers pay for it.
