I keep hearing this term “Dad Bod.”
It’s all over social media.
But what is a Dad Bod?
It turns out that Dad Bod is a term coined by Mackenzie Pearson, a sophomore at Clemson University.
On March 30, 2015, Ms. Pearson wrote a post on a forum site titled “Why Girls Love the Dad Bod.”
In this post, Mackenzie described the Dad Bod as look that “is a nice balance between beer gut and working out.”
According to Mackenzie, 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.”
The man with a dad bod is one who isn’t overweight, but he’s not a sculpted body builder either.
This is great news for men who enjoy a few beers and wear their gut as a symbol of pride.
