Which is the most obese state, and which is the least? Some new winners in 2013.


Montana claimed the title of least obese state in 2013, bumping Colorado out of the top spot, while Mississippi ranked as the most obese state, pushing out West Virginia, according to a Gallup-Healthways survey that questioned 178,000 adults about their height, weight and other issues related to personal health.
In 2013, Mississippi had an obesity rate of 35.4 percent, while the rate in Montana was 19.6 percent, the poll found. Montana was the only state with an obesity rate of less than 20 percent.
