Make America eat sensibly again.

WalletHub has released a list of the fattest cities in America for 2017. And the rankings confirm what we learned in last year's list of the heaviest states: the South is so heavy, you half expect the weight of everyone there to cause a tectonic plate underneath to snap, causing the entire region to break off from the rest of the country and form a new nation founded on the core principles of Duncan Hines, Pizza Hut and Häagen- Dazs.

The list was created by analyzing 17 factors in three categories: obese population figures, weight-related health problems and healthy environment. Grab a Big Gulp and check it out for yourself below.
