and pictures of herself holding difficult yoga poses.

And this is Amy's boyfriend, Edward Lane.

Let's just say that he has an Instagram presence that is all his own:

His feed looks vaguely like Amy's...

...but something is a little off.

According to Mashable, Lane was never really into the whole Instagram thing, but after he started dating Hopkinson, he was surprised to find that so many people latched onto wellness bloggers and influencers.

All of a sudden I was having to stand on the sofa behind her to get a good angle of some porridge unsanitarily close to her feet, or awkwardly skulk behind her to avoid being caught on her morning story. I thought the whole thing was insane. Literally hundreds of people were double-tapping a picture of my girlfriend eating salad – it made absolutely no sense to me. But most of all it cracked me up.

So Lane decided to get his slice of the fitness blogger pie by starting his own parody account called @wellness_ted (a clear homage to Amy's handle, @wellness_ed). According to his profile, @wellness_ted is "Preaching wellness one self-important #wellfie at a time" and considers himself to be a "Unqualified PT, Knowledge-free Nutritionist" and public figure.

He posts most of the same things would would be on a #blessed lifestyle blogger's Insta, including his meal prep,

When hangovers and #mealprep have a beautiful baby...

And a those super fit-spirational before-and-after pictures:

PROGRESS // On the left - unhealthy. On the right - healthy. At the start of the year I thought the only way to get abs was being restrictive with my diet. Pizza was on the menu - but only in bite size pieces. And, as you can see from the look on my face, I wasn't happy about it! And then all of a sudden I discovered the WHOLE FOODS DIET. Before that I never knew what whole foods really meant - and then I realised it just meant ALL OF IT. And I've not looked back since. For months I'd been enviously scrolling Instagram seeing lean influencers photographing and talking about all the amazing treats they squeeze into their nutrition plans - doughnuts, popcorn, chocolate, peanut butter, chocolate AND peanut butter - while still looking fantastic. Initially I thought they were all a bunch of phoney liars. Taking a picture of doughy goodness before turning to a plate of leaves. But now I know that, contrary to some people's concerns, everything you see on social media is genuine and real *breathes sigh of relief* And it turns out there's some science behind it too. Research conducted by the esteemed Dr Oetker - an expert in the field - found that refusing to slice up your pizza and eating it whole means your body has to work harder to break it down. This slowing of digestion prevents the insulin spikes associated with weight gain and helps you to feel fuller for longer, preventing snacking. Now that's what I call an upper crust health tip! Lunch, anyone?

No really, if you have ever encountered one of the accounts those seemingly perfect, aesthetically pleasing, unobtainable lifestyle bloggers and rolled your eyes, you are going to love Lane's account:

And despite being mocked by her boyfriend in front of his 6,000+ followers, Amy certainly doesn't seem to mind.
