According to this data, Nevada has 23.6% of its residents with a BMI of greater than 30. 1 in 4 Nevadans are more than just overweight, they are flattly obese.  This is, no pun intended, huge. The amount of fundamental lifestyle change that needs to occur is truly significant. Relationships with food must change. Exercise programs need to begin.
