Number One, Unfortunately

Mexico has knocked the US from its top spot among the world's most most overweight nations, according to a new study from the OECD. Seventy percent of Mexicans suffer from some form of obesity, compared to 68 percent of Americans. Calderón made remarks claiming the same in January, but this is, to my knowledge, the first study that shows Mexico as the world's tubbiest nation.

To celebrate my intimate relationship with each nation's cuisine, I'm doubling up on lunch: a plate of deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza along side an order of twelve tacos al pastor. Pray for my arteries.
