A new report shows that Michigan is the fifth fattest state in the country.  According to a report released by Trust for America’s Health on Tuesday, nearly one-in-three Michigan adults were obese in 2011.  That’s an increase of roughly 50-percent since 1995.  Officials say if the trend continues, almost 60-percent of Michigan residents will be obese by 2030.
