The answer might surprise you! Who am I kidding? Everyone knows it’s a) USA. I blame it on the high calorie and fat content of English words. Why else would the primary language of five of the top 11 most obese countries be English? According to, here are the top 11 most obese countries in the world:

1. USA
2. Mexico (Mmm…guacamole and tortilla chips!)
3. The United Kingdom
4. Slovakia
5. Greece (I thought the Greek diet was supposed to be healthy?!)
6. Australia
7. New Zealand
8. Hungary (Ironic, right?)
9. Luxembourg
10. Czech Republic
