Who: Recovered anorexic Megan Jayne Crabbe makes it her social media mission to shatter the ‘not good enough mentality’ mindset people have about their bodies. After her incredible journey overcoming her eating disorder, Megan regularly posts unfiltered selfies to her Instagram followers, showing every belly roll and imperfection in a beautiful, light-hearted way. Megan uses social media to support those who feel pressure conform to society’s beauty standards or are struggling with eating disorders themselves, making her one of body positivity’s brightest voices.
Let’s Get Real: Megan started disliking the appearance of her body when she was just five years old, and by the age of 10, she was dieting and restricting her food obsessively. At 14, she was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa and weighed only 29.5kg at her darkest point, and had to be tube fed in the hospital. Soon, her anorexia transcended into binge-eating disorder. Megan’s recovery began when she discovered a body positivity movement which rejects obsessive calorie-counting, regimes to sculpt unachievable bodies, and self-loathing called Bopo. She then started using social media to support those who are struggling with their body image and eating disorders.
