New York Obesity Ranking

(WENY)--- A new study finds that more two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese. But, there's some good news for the Empire State.

We have one of the lowest adult obesity rates in the country, coming in 47th. The study was conducted by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

It shows Louisiana and Mississippi are tied for the heaviest state. Almost 70% of their residents tip the scales about the health weight with 1 in 3 classified as obese.

Pennsylvania is at the other end of the chart- they are number 20 in the country.
