Study: Men Gain Between 3 to 5 Pounds When They Become a Dad


Recent research has found that fatherhood makes men gain weight - even if they don´t live with their children.

Researchers measured the body mass index of more than 10,000 men over a period of 20 years. First-time resident dads experienced an average 2.6 percent increase in their BMIs. Those without kids lost an average of 2 pounds over the study period.

"The more weight the fathers gain and the higher their BMI, the greater risk they have for developing heart disease as well as diabetes and cancer," Dr. Craig Garfield explains.
