    Interesting article. Other than the fact the results are based off of the "BMI" Body Mass Index (which I think is flawed). But anyway, interesting that the US is a distant third, nearly tied with Germany and Egypt.

    mmmm BMI... apparently I'm over weight with a BMI of 29 *wipes brow* Thank gawd I'm not yet obese.....

    I need a willing volunteer to remove my legs.

    Thinking about it, I've never been anything but in the over weight category since I was in my late teens when we did the tests at school, while all but three others in my class were all in the "ideal" range, I was the biggest guy in the class room too (I don't mean fat) I towered over even my teacher who was 5'7

    meh they need a better calculation I think.

    Between the three nations, that's about 300 million overweight people. If they were carrying an average of 25 pounds too many, that's 7.5 billion pounds. I burn about 700 calories in a good hour on the treadmill, so that's about 37.5 billion hours of running in place to shed those pounds. So if we could find a way to burn other people's fat, and I stopped eating and sleeping altogether, I could get through it all by the time I'm, um - let me get my calculator here - 4,278,422 years old. I hope it's true that healthy people live longer.

    Either I need some help or it's better to let them shed those pounds themselves.
