Put down the burger. Slowly back away from it. Now get your butt to the gym, stat. We don’t know how else to break it to you, but dude, you’re getting fat. Today’s infographic from CalorieLab has the proof.

Obesity is straight up out of control in our country, with most states weighing in with over a quarter of their residents past the obesity line. Mississippi, the fattest state in the nation, counts more than a third of its people as obese.

Even Colorado, the fittest state in America, has a 19.1% obesity rate. We love you dearly, readers, but it’s time for everyone to step away from the computer and go do a few laps. We want you to live long, healthy lives, and to look great naked!

How does your state rank?
