The problem of obesity in the nation - and in Kentucky - has gotten worse, not better. Colorado, an outdoorsy state with a lifestyle that seems to emphasize health and physical activity: lowest obesity rates in the nation, with a relatively svelte 22 percent incidence in adults. He said Florida's not the only state struggling with overweight residents.

According to The Denver Post, obesity rates have risen in 31 states from 2012 to 2017. The rate among women is 28.5 percent, while it is 24.5 percent among men, the report states. The report says Iowa, Massachusetts, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and SC saw their adult obesity rates increase significantly between 2016 and 2017. Obesity is determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as having a Body Mass Index - or BMI - of 30 or higher. No states reduced their obesity percentage over that five year period. The report says Iowa, Massachusetts, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and SC saw their adult obesity rates increase significantly between 2016 and 2017.

California's ethnic breakdown shows a 32.1 percent rate among Latinos, 31.4 percent rate among blacks and 23.1 percent among whites.

"But we isn't any longer going to look important declines in instruct and national obesity rates until they're applied all around the nation and receive sustained toughen", Auerbach acknowledged in a data release from his group. "And when the funding goes down, states like Florida and the local communities within the state lose resources".

Over the last two decades, the USA has implemented countless awareness programs aimed at both adults and children to try to combat the obesity epidemic.

Health experts say obesity drives an estimated $149 billion annually in health care spending and an extra $66 billion in lowered economic productivity.

The report does point to at least one bright spot in certain settings where policies and programs have made it easier to eat well and exercise. "Our goal at the state level is to work across sectors to advocate for and implement evidence-based policies that encourage active healthy living and support healthy and safe communities that provide access to healthy foods, physical activity, and clinical preventive services".
