World’s Fattest Places/World’s Skinniest Places

I’m 5’10”, and I weigh about 150 pounds. I am by no means fat. However, when I lived in Zambia, I was routinely called fat by my neighbors. At first, I found it insulting, but I quickly got used to it. After all, compared to them, I was fat.

According to a recent survey by the World Health Organization, 8 of the top 10 fattest countries are located in the South Pacific — ironically, right along the equator, in an area so hot, all you want to do is remove all your clothes. If you like big butts (and you can not lie), here are the Top 10 fattest countries.

  1. Nauru
  2. Micronesia
  3. Cook Islands
  4. Tonga
  5. Niue
  6. Samoa
  7. Palau
  8. Kuwait
  9. United States
  10. Kiribati

Just to balance the scales, the Top 11 LEAST obese nations are (with the skinniest at the bottom):

  1. Zambia
  2. Burundi
  3. Central African Republic
  4. Cambodia
  5. Dem. Republic of the Congo
  6. Nepal
  7. Sri Lanka
  8. Vietnam
  9. Bangladesh
  10. Ethiopia
  11. Eritrea
