A Guide to the Leanest and Non-Leanest Places

If you ever wondered where exactly the most lean thinking is done in the United States, wonder no more: It's in Colorado. At least, that's according to a recent study undertaken by CalorieLab Inc. As you'll see, this study is looking at the "other lean," the one focused on reducing body fat rather than manufacturing waste.

Conversely, the least amount of lean thinking occurs in Mississippi, which has earned its reputation as the "fattest state in the nation" for three years in a row.

For whatever reasons, New England is the leanest region in the U.S., while the South is the, errrrr, non-leanest. Chew on that as you will.
