We’re promoting a new program for men… all about escaping the ‘dad bod.’
It seems to really be touching a nerve.
Before you have children… you’re active. You go out on weekends. Maybe even weeknights.
Maybe you participated in a sport. Maybe you jogged or rode bike. Maybe you just went out to clubs and danced.
Having kids changed that. You stayed in. You sat in front of the tele and ate crisps. The longest walk you remember taking was in circles around the nursery, holding a crying child.
Except, that lack of activity… this more sedentary life… has led to you putting on a few pounds. Your clothes are tight in the wrong places and don’t fit like they used to… your confidence is taking a hit because you know you’ve changed a bit, but you just aren’t sure what to DO about it.
Admitting you even *have* the ‘dad bod’ can be pretty tough.
There’s loads more sympathy out there for women who put on weight after having kids… but men? Not so much.
But here you are.
So, what do you do?
Well, you could sign up for our program… and lose the dad bod--- which is my TOP suggestion.
There are other little tweaks you can make though, simple changes that will add up over time and really help you make a big difference.
First, really look at what you’re eating… think about it. Would cutting out sugary drinks significantly impact the number of calories you are taking in daily? Switch to water.
Are you reaching for crap snacks in the middle of the night because you are bored and hungry? Stop eating after dinner. Just don’t have those late night treats. Or, try a glass of water.
Dehydration can trick your body into thinking it’s hungry even when it’s not.
Food is only part of the battle, though, right? You need to increase your activity level and you still have kids at home. So--- take them with you. Take a brisk walk around the block or take them to a park. *Play* with them. Engage them in activities that require they expend energy… because you will, too.
Bonus--- you’ll both sleep better. Which reduces stress. And reduction of stress will also help you lose a little weight.
Now, these tips *will* put you on track to ditch the dad bod--- but, if you want more help… if you want the support of coaches and other people going through the same thing… or, if you feel like a little competition may really help you achieve your goal--- get your skates on…
Because Urban Fitness is going to show you how to get rid of that ‘dad bod’ for good.
