If you live near a fast food restaurant, you aren’t more likely to gain weight. Researchers looked at 30 years of data collected from participants in the Framingham Heart Study, which gathered information on heart health and weight in people around Framingham, Ma.
Researchers found that “living near a fast-food restaurant had no effect on weight overall, with a minimal effect for women.”
He went on to shockingly to state, “Our study shows that it’s likely not where you live that matters, but what you eat.”
This may be a breakthrough in the weight loss community. It’s what you EAT that makes you fat!
I smelled something Mcfishy with this study so I did some independent research. You must be more likely to gain weight if you live by a fast food restaurant. As is turns out…
These are the fattest states in America.
1. Mississippi (33.8% of adults are obese)
2. Alabama (31.6%)
3. Tennessee (31.6%)
4. West Virginia (31.3%)
5. Louisiana (31.2%)
6. Oklahoma (30.6%)
7. Arkansas (30.1%)
8. South Carolina (29.9%)
9. North Carolina (29.4%)
10. Missouri (29.3%)
Here are the states with the most Mcdonalds per 100,000 people!
1. Hawaii 5.9
2. Michigan 5.4
3. Ohio 5.4
4. Wisconsin 5.1
5. Missouri 5.1
6. Nevada 5.1
7. Louisiana 5.3
8. Kentucky 5.3
9. Kansas 5.3
AH HA! Missouri and Louisiana!!!!! You totally have a lot of Mcdonalds and fat people! I will prove this study wrong!
Look at this chart of fast food restaurants per 1,000 people! uhhh…
In conclusion, I wasted time searching the interweb and found nothing. But, polish a turd and you can find a diamond. My new hypothesis is, fat people are better than crappy fast food establishments. They would much rather eat at cheesecake factory. Scratch that, there is no cheesecake factory in Mississippi. You win fat people.
