Strong + Bendy’s favourite instagram accounts!

By Rhian Cowburn (Studio Founder)

If your Instagram feed is full of fitness or wellness influencers making you feel bad about yourself, it might be time to start following some of these folks instead…

Alex Light 

Alex Light is a body confidence and self-acceptance activist. She also has a podcast called The Light Show where she explores confidence, body image, and self-acceptance in a fun and honest way. She chats with specialists on topics such as emotional eating, accepting weight gain + more. Every time we look at Alex’s Instagram we want her as our BFF!

Megan Jayne Crabbe

Megan Jayne Crabbe creates inspiring content around the topics of body positivity, eating disorder recovery, mental health and feminism. Her fantastic interview with Jameelia Jamil on the I Weigh Podcast is very much worth a listen. Megan’s honesty about her recovery from eating disorders, bravery standing up to online trolls and all exceptional wardrobe choices (look at all those rainbow clothes!!🌈) give her a massive thumbs up from us.


Aubrey Gordon

Quite possibly the wittiest human alive Aubrey Gordon hosts the Maintenance Phase Podcast and runs social media accounts under the handle Your Fat Friend. An activist who writes about anti-fat bias,  and calls out the fat-phobic that often underpins ‘wellness trends’.

Anti-Diet Riot Club 

Becky Young and Harri Rose run Anti-Diet Riot club ; an on and offline community of like-minded people helping dismantle body shame, fat phobia and diet culture. They’re on a mission to get people accepting and respecting their bodies, enabling them to find freedom from the cycle of dieting and body hatred.
