This article examines the effect of social media exposure on the body satisfaction levels of the teenagers in Ludhiana. The thin-ideal body for teenage girls and muscular-ideal body for teenage boys, which is prominent on social media, is disruptive for teenagers mental health and eating habits. Consequently, teenagers become prone to developing eating disorders. Research suggests that teenagers who spend more time on social media are at a greater risk of developing obesity.

This article also lays emphasis on the responses given by teenagers belonging to Ludhiana, whom I have interviewed over a span of two months. Thus, the methodology used for this article is a mix of critical discourse analysis, surveys and interviews.
