Fat Fast Food

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!

Fancy!

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
10.Virginia 5.0

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.

  1. It’s kind of funny but most fat people I know don’t really go out of their way to eat fast It’s kind of funny but most fat people I know don’t really go out of their way to eat fast food. Most really fat people I know prefer places like Golden Coral or Hometown Buffet or the average Chinese food buffet where it’s all you can eat for one flat fixed price. Furthermore I agree that the proximity of fast food eating establishments probably has nothing to do with how much you will weigh. Several studies have already been done and concluded that living in the suburbs makes you more likely to be fat. Living where everything is spread out and one must drive a vehicle to get to your destination is said to contribute to obesity. Obviously the idea that living in close proximity to fast food establishment increases the likelihood of being fat doesn’t really fit the theory. If one lived close to a fast food place one wouldn’t need to drive a car to get there, now would they. Most of these studies are nothing more than conflicting bullshit built on lies. Demonizing obesity and making fat people into pariahs has become the flavor of the week for certain segments of our society. It’s all based on profit and exploitation and the lies and the spin will not end until the truth is exposed.establishment increases the likelihood of being fat doesn’t really fit the theory.

    • Maybe it’s better taste in food? I think people generally like cooking more in the southern states which also happen to be the heaviest. I think suburbs tend to be heavier because city folk are generally forced to walk more and the average age is usually younger. I guess with an observational study you can manipulate the data any way you want.
