According to a new study published by the International Journal of Obesity, people living in high altitude states like Colorado are less likely to obese than people who live at sea level.

The researchers looked at 422,603 people in the United States and found that people at sea level were four to five times more likely to be obese, compared to people who live above sea level.

The article also pointed out that many Coloradoan's live a very active lifestyle, so that might be the reason we stay skinnier.
