The Dad Bod is Back in Style

Go ahead and eat that donut!

If you remember, out of shape dudes rejoiced when the dad bod became all the rage a few years ago.

According to Urban Dictionary the Dad bod is “a male body type that is best described as “softly round.” It’s built upon the theory that once a man has found a mate and fathered a child, he doesn’t need to worry about maintaining a sculpted physique.”

Last week a minor league baseball team rocked jerseys inspired by Dad bods at a game that happened on Father’s Day.

Planet Fitness asked people how they feel about their physique and found 23 million men who identify as having a Dad bod. 71% of people believe the Dad bod should be acceptable up from 63% last year.

Also, 48% of guys have embraced their Dad bods and 78% f men and women believe people with Dad bods are more confident.
