Based on the following site: http://www.cnn.com/2005/HEALTH/diet.fitness/04/06/overweight.california.ap/index.html Californians enjoy eating. My dad used to own a Mongolian BBQ. It was popular during dinner time since it's all you can eat. Many times, I would see obese people coming in. Very scary!!! Hopefully this study will encourage Californians to start working out!
