Hawaii was also one of five states that reduced its obesity rate the most 
between 2013 and 2014, when the survey was conducted.

.

By contrast, obesity grew nationwide to 27.7 percent in 2014, up from 27.1 
percent in 2013 and 25.5 percent in 2008, the first year that 
Gallup-Healthways conducted its well-being survey. The state with the 
highest obesity level in the nation was Missouri, with 30.9 percent of its 
population suffering from the condition.

.

So how did Hawaii become number one? Calhoun emphasized that Hawaii has 
implemented "an enormous amount of programming around health and healthy 
lifestyle behaviors." Kathryn Braun, director of the Office of Public 
Health Studies and a professor of public health at the University of 
Hawaii, confirmed this sentiment. Hawaii -- particularly the island of 
Kauai -- has seen a variety of island-wide health initiatives in recent 
years, including more walking and bike paths and safer routes to schools 
for children, she said.

.

Braun also pinpointed effective health strategies, such as the Hawaii 
State Department of Health's Healthy Hawaii initiative, which since 2000 
has focused on reducing smoking rates, increasing physical activity and 
promoting healthy eating among residents, as well as the PILI Ohana 
Partnership, a community-based research organization specifically designed 
to reduce health disparities such as obesity in the Native Hawaiian and 
Pacific populations.

Here are three other things Hawaii is doing right:
