Mexico heads the list of the world's most overweight industrialized nations. Fat chance you say? Exactly.
Nearly a third of Mexican adults are obese, a recent United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization report says, topping even the United States, which comes in a close second at 31.8%.
The United States has long been a fixture atop the chubby list.
The culprit? High-calorie, low-cost, processed foods and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle as Mexican incomes rise and more people move into metropolitan areas.
