Colorado is lowest.
Sitting in a bar right now and looking around, out of 25 people, I see 1 that's probably considered obese.
Never really noticed before.

Is this where I come to gloat about losing 30lbs in the last few months through this new fad called eating less and exercising more?


/60lbs over 3 years

//10lbs from high school

///I eat smaller portions and walk/jog an hour 4/5 times a week, pull-ups and push-ups
///patent pending

It's ok Lou, you're beautiful inside.  You can still make cheerleader. Don't listen to Colorado or Arizona. I believe in you!

Well, we probably have the most Popeye's Fried Chicken establishments per capita, and the Cajuns do like their cracklins and boudin.

In fact, I think I will have Popeye's tonight. I'm feeling lazy.

/ not fat. It's some sort of miracle.

Popeyes has a different recipe in Louisiana than the one they use in other parts of the country.

And Popeyes was started by an Italian.  Al Copleland was good people.

Louisiana people get fat eating good food.

Louisiana is an anomaly.  A French, Spanish, and Italian amalgamation with incredible food and culture.

too much outdoorsy shiat to do here.  i rarely see fat people on the sides of downtown where i live/frequent, but the burbs are a different story.
also, i farking love this state.

even with all the weed and good beer, its hard to get fat in colorado unless you really try... by not trying to do anything.
 
2013-08-16 08:37:41 PM
Dunno, but when the state with the lowest rate of obesity is clocking in at 1-in-5, maybe rankings are sort of superfluous.

Yep, we tend to like things a little spicier, and my aunt worked for the owner before he croaked, and they had to dial it down as far as spice for the rest of the country.

Yes, they sure as shiat do. I had a Darrel's Special just the other day. The "Cajun" food around here is terrible, Lake Charles might as well be part of Texas as far as that goes. I'm originally from Lafayette, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a good restaurant there. The casino here has some excellent restaurants, however. And there's a few hole-in-the-wall places that are really good, like Leonard's Food Quarters. And Zeus if you like Mediterranean.

Yup. I was on Bourbon Street last time Ohio State played in the Sugar Bowl, I saw plenty of tOSU coeds walking barefoot in the muck and exposing themselves in 40 degree weather. Oy.

I weighed 170 lbs. when I came to New Orleans.  I now hover between 200 and 210.  Enjoy the food, indeed.

You'd think with the heat they would want to be thinner. The fat sticking to things and sweating all the time must be really uncomfortable.

You should see what they pass off as etoufee and muffalettas here in Texas. Pathetic. And no beignets. Planning on moving back to La. in a year or so. BR is out of my price range, but anything from Jennings east would be fine.

Beer, cocktails, and daiquiris to offset the heat, food to be happy.  There's a method to the madness fatness.

Ah, the Hub. Yes. I ate at the original when I was at U of Louisiana-Lafayette (Home of Fark's Favorite shiatty QB!) at least once a week. Judice Inn is still the home of the best greasy-ass burger though.

My high school was De La Salle, and we used to walk to mass at Loyola, we would stop and buy a fitfh of vodka at Time Saver, mix it with oj, then drink it on the way to mass.  I miss my city.
