Wisconsin is now ranked 33rd in the nation for obesity by the Centers for Disease Control, which seems like a big improvement from the number one spot two decades ago.
However, Doctor Pat Remington of the UW School of Medicine says it's somewhat deceiving. He says obesity rates in the Badger States have continued to climb, just not as quickly as they have in other states.
About 25-percent of the adult population in Wisconsin is considered obese by the CDC. Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee were rated the most obese in the study.
