Though it may not be a suprize to many, considering our love afair with food, Louisiana is ranked number 50 out of 50. Meaning we are the dead last and considered the unhealthiest state in America. Thankfully  some locals believe that we can be move up in the rankings but its going a shift in our thinking about food.
