    So FINALLY the United States is no longer the fattest nation in the world...well according to the same people in the article, there were a few other countries that have been considered fatter but they didn't get the bad press.

    I'm probably going to have several people attack me and still call the United States fat..I'm not sayin the US is now skinny. So if you're going to attack me and say I'm wrong and so is the article, I can show an Australian site that says the same thing.

    The US is finally getting healthier, I was watching on the news one day and wish I could find an article, but appearently childhood obesity rates are starting to level off and in some places decline...not by much but that's a good sign that the US is getting healthier.

    I haven't been to Australia but it seems the ones on RJ are pretty fit, but then again they are gay and we all know that gay guys are more health minded anyway.

    What, it's a national disgrace, the US is not in the #1 spot anymore. icon_lol.gif

    Joking aside, I hope the trend continues, we still have a very long way to go.

    I wonder if it's that the U.S. is getting healthier or if it's just that Australia is getting better at getting unhealthy. That's not really clear from the article. We could still be getting worse, but Australia is just getting worse faster.

    Still, there sure do seem to be lots of hot Australian guys.
