Where do you think Texas ranks in the fattest states? According to Wallethub, we came in at number 11.
For the rankings, 19 different fat factors, including: three key components, obesity and overweight prevalence, health consequences, and food and fitness were used. The state with the highest obesity rates was Mississippi for the second year in a row. The state with the lowest obesity rate is Colorado. Texas ranked second for highest percent of obese children behind Mississippi.

On the Factor are to people to help you rethink that second helping of cornbread dressing—celebrity trainer Milton Harris and Dr. Luis Rustveld, a registered dietician at Baylor College Medicine.
