What does Dadbod mean?

Guy’s body shape with too much fat around the belly

Dadbod is a popular slang term that describes a specific body type in men. This body type tends to show a bit of extra weight around the stomach, but isn’t quite as pronounced as a beer belly.

This kind of physique is usually seen in men who used to be fit but have let themselves go a bit due to factors such as less physical activity, slower metabolism due to age, or not-so-healthy eating habits. The term Dadbod perfectly captures this middle ground between fit and overweight.

It’s most commonly seen in fathers who are in their 30s and 40s, hence the name ‘Dadbod’. But it’s not exclusive to dads. You might also see it spelled as ‘dad bod’ or ‘dad-bod’ in different places.

Example for using ‘Dadbod’ in a conversation

Hey, have you seen Mark lately? He’s got a dadbod now. πŸ˜‚

Haha, really? What’s a dadbod? πŸ€”

It’s when a guy has a bit of a belly but not a full-on beer belly. Like, he’s not super fit but not overweight either. πŸ˜…

Ah, got it! So it’s like a middle ground between being fit and being out of shape? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
