I am in Utah and am surprised that we are pretty low in the ranking. This is just OBESITY, not necessarily the percentage of people who are overweight. It is unbelievable that 1/3 of Americans are obese. You can more than double that for the number of people who are overweight.
If everyone was thin again people would feel better about themselves and there would be more dating and marriages. This is one of these areas that people overlook when discussing how the social and dating life in the US is so awful.
To make matters worse I heard on the radio than an estimated 70-100 million Americans are pre-diabetic and don't even know it.
I read that between 65% and 75% of Americans are overweight. So two out of three, or three out of four Americans are overweight, unbelievable!
No wonder why most of the women I see out in public are fat.
"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"
"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
I am very surprised and disappointed that the Top 5 skinniest states are not;
and 5, South Carolina.
Obesity has absolutely no excuse at all in a tropical climate! Many times, I feel like I could get a bullhorn and tell entire crowds that obesity has zero excuse in a tropical climate. Literally tell them to get on the bicycles, go swimming at the beach, go jogging, and grow and eat healthy fruits and vegetables, especially including coconuts, oranges, bananas, pineapples, broccoli, corn, and grapefruits.
Hawaii has some Somoans and other Polynesian peoples that tend to be kind of large. Samoans tend to be large, and I think being fat is part of the culture. That may have kept the state a little further down the list.
Many are overweight, but there is a difference between some extra kilo or morbidly obese.
The worst cases of 'morbidly obese' are clearly black women - even black very young girls...

BMI is a very simple number, which is merely a ratio between body height and weight.
It's not useless, if corrected - children / adults, black/white/mixed/Asian race, comparing same races in different countries etc.
There is no question about that a huge part of the population in USA, especially the black woman, is seriously overweight. For that you do not need even any BMI data, it is enough what you see with your own eyes.
Unfortunately data worldwide are collected only since about 2014 and therefore rather incomplete.

It is true that BMI is delivering questionable data and other better measure procedures are under consideration.
