Square 1 ... for the 100th time

Square one. Starting to prioritise your health and fitness. Lacing up the runners and going for that first jog. Trading in the pizza and beers for broccoli and protein shakes. We’ve all been there. But how many of us have been there for what feels like the 100th time?

We love beer. There, we said it. Here at DadBods, we have a longstanding, unwavering, borderline worrying affection for the liquid gold. We love our beer on tap, we love our beer in a bottle. We love tinnies, stubbies, growlers, pots, pints, schooners, shotguns and yardsticks. We love lagers, ales, pilsners, stouts, porters, malts and wheat beers.

Leave the gym... get outdoors!

Leave the gym... get outdoors!

There are few things more important to me, from a holistic health perspective, than getting outdoors.

It’s not that gyms can’t provide me with benefits and results,...

Sugar? No thanks, I'm sweet enough.

Sugar? No thanks, I'm sweet enough.

Don’t let the title fool you, this isn’t an article on how much we love Dad jokes (we really do)… this is an article about addiction to sugar, and what you can do about it. From a young age, we have been bred to be weapons of mass sugar consumption. Did your homework? Nice work, here’s a lollipop. You’ve been quiet for 5 minutes and haven’t hit your sister? Fantastic, here’s an ice cream. It’s your birthday? OMG! Here is an entire party devoted to the sugar gods. Cake. Lollies. FAIRY BREAD. Heaven on earth. For a long time there has...
