The National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says obesity has become a problem in every state.

The CDC says no state reported less than 20% of their adult population were obese in 2010.
This means no state met their national healthy people 2010 goal.

Nearly a third of adults in twelve states are obese, compared to nine states in 2009 and zero states in 2000.

The south had the highest rate of obesity at just under 30%.

The midwest had an obesity rated of nearly 29%. The northeast came in just under 25% and the west at just over 24%.
