Sympathy Weight for Dads

Dads-to-Be Pack on the Sympathy Pounds

One for the mama-to-be and one for me. That may be an expectant father’s mantra, but considering that he doesn’t have an unborn baby to nourish — those extra calories add up. While women have weight goals they are expected to reach during their pregnancy, pop’s pounds are simply gained in sympathy.

Almost three-quarters of lilsugar readers reported their husbands packing on weight over the course of nine months, and recently British researchers have found that the average dad-to-be adds 14 pounds to his frame due to more frequent dinners out and additional snacks around the house. However, unlike their female counterparts, only 30 percent of the men dieted with the new moms to lose the weight after the baby’s arrival.

Did your spouse lose the weight he gained during your pregnancy?
