I'm not familiar with Maoxian, but I know what he means.

What's really weird is that we are the only population in the history of the world where our poor population is the fattest!

Ha, I admit to knowing who Sportacus is!

Steve Edwards has numerous posts about obesity in America at http://steve-edwards.blogspot.com/, including a post that links to this extremely depressing interactive fat map.
