The people have spoken, and they want muscles. In the great American debate over which version of Chris Pratt—dadbod or rippedbod—is hotter, the winner is clear: of the just over 20,000 votes, 61 percent went to rippedbod, making dadbod something like the Walter Mondale of body types


You're welcome

The guy in the first video should be shot for his accent alone.

Ah, the “dadbod.” A recently-coined term, it describes the body of a man whose belly suggests that he’s had a few thousand beers during NFL Sunday. Now, he’s not “fat” by any means. In fact, his broad shoulders suggests that he balances his pizza intake with bench presses and curls. So how does this body occur and how do you undo a “dadbod?”

***
Dadbods have the ultimate advantage. They are men with a good amount of muscle tone, which means that they have a higher metabolism. Out of any single persona, the dadbod is physiologically the easiest when it comes to weight loss. If you have a dadbod and feel like weight loss is difficult, try being a 5’3 180-lb woman then get back to me.

Really, all dadbods have to do is use determine the number of calories they need every day to lose weight—which will still be a lot—whilst simultaneously keeping their protein high. Of course individuals may encounter particular difficulties. Perhaps mindfulness is an issue, for example, but I am being terse here for a reason. You have it easier than anyone else when it comes to losing weight.


Fortunately; I do NOT have a Dadbod ... and with this simple guide, I can avoid getting one

The only time I came close to having a dad bod was when I broke my ankle and gained about 30 pounds.


I've never really struggled with weight gain.  I consider this a blessing.

There was a point in my early 20s when I was DOWN to 150 pounds, I looked emaciated.

Plus...I'm not a dad...so there's that.

I've embraced the dadbod. I never want to be as skinny as I was 2 or 3 years ago, that involves way too much narcissistic focus on the self and at the end of the day is more about insecurity (for sure the same as the insecurity underlying weightlifting freaks) than some misplaced commitment to "fitness".

If you can bang out a half marathon on any given Sunday, like me, and sport a wee pot belly well, like me, then my friends you are living la dolce vita and are bound to turn heads (but to sport dadbod you should not care if you do).

Try a month without beer, lad.


That pot belly will disappear.

For me the dadbod ship has already sailed.  :(

Do you think I should get ahead of the curve by staking out the grampabod meme before it arrives?  :old:
