America: land of the free and home of the obese. But the truth is America’s waistlines aren’t so wide compared to their global neighbors. The United States ranks at #8 in Global Post’s list of the world’s 25 fattest countries. And this whole time we thought we were the big boys in the room. Can someone please pass me the that box of doughnuts? I’m hungry. Shit.

According to Global Post, the top 10 fattest countries are as follows:

1.) Nauru (95% of the population)

2.) Micronesia (92% of the population)

3.) The Cook Islands (92% of the population)

4.) Tonga (92% of the population)

5.) Niue (84% of the population)

6.) Samoa (83% of the population)

7.) Palau (81% of the population)

8.) United States (79% of the population)

9.) Kiribati (77% of the population)

10.) Dominica (76% of the population)
