21 Fattest Countries on Earth Named by WHO

A new list compiled by the World Health Organization (WHO) names the 21 fattest places on earth, reports CBS News. While about 67 percent of Americans are overweight, the U.S. certainly isn't the only country with a weight problem. The top five overweight nations and their percentages overweight include Panama (67.4), Saudi Arabia (73), French Polynesia (74), Kiribati (82) and American Samoa (94). Other countries on WHO's fat list include Canada, Chile, the Indian Ocean nation of Seychelle, Barbados, Macedonia, the United Kingdom, Bahrain, Croatia, Israel, Malta, New Zealand, Bosnia and Herzegovinia, Kuwait and Egypt. Germany has one of the higher overweight rates at 66.5 percent, and the U.S. is next on the list with 66.9 percent.
