What Is the Dad Bod?

Are You Into the "Dad Bod"?

Chiseled abs are out, the "dad bod" is in. According to the article that kick-started the term, "The dad bod says, 'I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.'" This body type — also described as "a nice balance between a beer gut and working out" — is, allegedly, what women are into these days, which ties into the recent perfect man study that concluded women prefer the boy-next-door look over the idealized man. Men are even jumping on the trend, showing their #dadbod pride on Instagram with their shirtless photos. But what do you think about the dad bod? Are you attracted to a man with "more to cuddle," or would you prefer a more fit physique? Weigh in below!
