LIES!

See:
But the UAB researchers found that when people were actually weighed, the numbers didn't add up.

Mississippi was fourth and Alabama was in the middle of the pack, Howard said.


By comparing the BRFSS self-reported weight data with the REGARDS scale-weight data, researchers found that most everyone fudges, or underreports, their weight when asked on a telephone.

Turns out that Southerners fudge less, he said.


In the telephone survey results, the East South Central region, which includes Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky, ranked highest. But when weighed, that southern region ranked fifth.

Yeah, but unless the rate at which people lie has changed in the past 20 years, the general trend still stands.

Huh? The data on the reports were undervalued. After ascertaining the correct values, then they get a different ranking. The "general trend" relied on false data...

They could be just getting stronger/musclier.

It is quite easy to have a BMI that says you are overweight (24+ iirc) yet have a body fat content kicking around 10%.
I go to the gym to justify my mockery of fat people.

I mean people are still getting fatter. Every single region has gotten significantly fatter. Maybe they're less fat in the south or whatever, but unless back in 1985 people were lying 5x times more than now, then the average american still has gotten way fatter.

Oh, yeah, sure, but I'd like to inform everyone that people in the south are fat, upstanding citizens; whereas, people everywhere else in the US are fat liars. Carry on!

I have the same BMI (like 27) now that I had my junior year in college. My body fat content in 2000 was about 12% to 15%. My body fat content now is much higher, although not measured.
