You know we are starting to get close the end of the year when these lists start coming out on the regular. There are some lists that it should be a goal to be on while others it's best to stay far, far away. 

This would be the latter. No one wants to end up on the list of the fattest states for 2018, but alas they did. In fact, one of the Carolinas actually made the top ten this year! Do you think it was North or South Carolina? 

Top 10 Fattest States for 2018

1. Mississippi

2. West Virginia

3. Arkansas

4. Kentucky

5. Tennessee

6. Louisiana

7. Alabama

8. South Carolina

9. Oklahoma

10. Texas

How do states end up on this dreaded list? Wallethub gathered data on all 50 states like hare of obese and overweight population to sugary-beverage consumption among adolescents to obesity-related health care costs.

How did North Carolina rank on the list? We came in at #17 which means we are doing better than our friend to the South, but we are still in that top 20 and that's not good.
