This Comedian Has the Perfect Response to Society’s Body Image Obsession

Deliciouslystella is a parody Instagram account that pokes fun at the hundreds of clean, healthy eating Instagram accounts out there.

Stand-up comedian Bella Younger, who hails from London, gets a kick out of posting her ridiculously unhealthy eating habits and using the #eatclean.

The 28-year-old told the Daily News in an email:

“I went on Instagram and everyone seemed to be doing yoga on a beach or eating vegetables masquerading as desserts.”

Younger isn’t afraid to post unglamorous photos of herself either. She wrote:

“I’m not saying I don’t like to look nice in photos– I do. But I also want to have fun, not stand in a mirror trying to get an angle on my abs.”

Narcissism and the focus on the body on social media is something Younger has also taken note of, as she said:
“I don’t know how we got to a place where taking a photo of yourself without make-up is #brave.”

Younger plans to continue to challenge society’s unhealthy obsession with body image:

“This is my face, if you don’t like it, fine. As long as you think I’m funny (it’s totally fine if you don’t think I’m funny also).”

Well this is a bit more realistic… #goals #eatclean #strongnotskinny A photo posted by Deliciously Stella (@deliciouslystella) on Jul 7, 2015 at 11:35pm PDT
