INDIANA (WLFI) — A new report has named Indiana the 10th fattest state in the country.

WalletHub compared all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

They were graded on three key factors – prevalence of obesity, health consequences, and food/fitness.

The top three fattest states were Mississippi, West Virginia, and Tennessee.

Earlier this year, Indianapolis was ranked 21 on a list of the "Fattest Cities in America."

WalletHub also named each state's top comfort foods.

Indiana's was sugar cream pie.
