A new report reveals the most and least obese states in the U.S. -- and they're not the same as previous years, reports the Huffington Post.

Montana is now the least obese state in the U.S., with 19.6 percent of residents qualifying as obese in 2013, according to a new report from Gallup-Healthways researchers.



Previously, Colorado was the least obese obese state -- but in 2013, it fell to the No. 2 spot, with an obesity rate of 20.4 percent.

Meanwhile, Mississippi is now the most obese state in the U.S., with 35.4 percent of residents being obese in 2013. West Virginia had previously been the most obese state from 2010 through 2012.
