Some countries are a little overweight, but some are quite thin. Here's a list of the 10 thinnest countries in the world in 2005, according to new research from the London School of Hygiene Tropical Medicine. The report can be found at BioMed Central. The rankings are based on theoretical total energy expenditure and calculated from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations for adults. The two categories cited in the list are adults per ton and the average energy used to maintain biomass due to body measurement index.
