Look around you. Is everybody fat? Depends on which State you're in...

  1. That's for 'obese' people, those with a BMI of 30 or more. A healthy BMI is under 35. Add in the overweight category featuring those with a BMI of 25-30 and the unhealthy crowd ballons to about 50% of the population. In many regions more. Ask ANYONE who works in an ER. They'll tell you that the majority of patients we see have a weight issue.
