    I'm cool with it. The less we (the average person) feel * immensely pressured* to look like someone from the film 300 or a Penthouse Model, the better.

    There's been a rise in image problems and eating disorders for both boys/men and girls/women, and that should be concerning.
    Obesity and the diseases that come from being overfat are more concerning, due to the sheer number.

    Complacency, which is ultimately what this dad bod fad boils down to, is not a good thing

    The supposedly named "Dad bod" is quite normal, largely healthy (not without a few modifications, mind you).

    Obesity numbers are staggering, but seeing one end of the spectrum likewise does not make it desirable to increase pressure for young people of both sexes to look like their ideals for the rest of their lives.

    It depends on the ideal. Wafer thin models or steroided up bodybuilders are as unhealthy and make poor role models. But simply trimming down to a shapely figure for women or until you can see a six pack in men is doable and healthy for pretty much anyone.

    At the end of the day, the best message we can send is to eat whole, healthy foods...cut down on junk, and try to get some exercise. The ideal body for you will follow that. Any "extreme" is unhealthy when it comes to your body

    So you are making fun of fat women, yet you are carrying around an extra 40 pounds?

    Hmm.....

    Most of the Dab Bod stuff I have seen hasn't been of overweight men, just men that aren't cut. You don't have to be cut to be healthy.

    I don't think it is a fad, it just has a word now.

    I can't speak for women but I know that what I like to LOOK at and what I like to cuddle up with at night are two very different things.

    Amen, brutha. My hubs is the perfect example of a dad bod. He's not fat, but he's not stick thin. Just a little nice padding, which is great to cuddle up with at night.

    I don't have an issue with someone wanting to feel "OK" with an average or slightly chubby body, or accepting others who have that body.

    But, it's fairly easy to be in near fitness model shape. Seriously, anyone can do it, and most of those "dadbod" types could achieve some degree of the fitness hard-body look in a matter of months, so why not?

    If we keep telling our self that "mediocracy is OK", then all we will ever be is mediocre.

    And what's wrong with mediocrity? Not everybody wants to, or feels the need to, look like an underwear model.
