The key to this understanding was recognition that everyone is different. There is no generic quick-fix which would be suitable to all people, irrespective of age, gender, genetics and the environment.
We were frustrated and disheartened with endless conflicting advice, subjective opinions with no peer-reviewed studies, miracle (and often dangerous) tablets from around the globe, fad diet products, sometimes supported by celebrity endorsements, and the latest get skinny fast advice all over media, so we decided to develop a system that could be personalised to the individual, which will target those triggers that differ from person to person.
Working with highly qualified nutritional and fitness experts and also utilising our extensive medicinal product and supplement knowledge spanning nearly 40 years, we selected the best and most effective herbs from around the world to provide our exclusive specialist healthy tea range, and combined that with some of the latest thinking on food and exercise to help realise peoples goals.
Our fully supportive plans really are something you can do for life, and we hope, will change the way you think and feel about your lifestyle choices.
We'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to all of us here at begu:
With some 20 years working in the healthcare industry, and having direct experience of difficulty dietary requirements, Stuart is one of the co-founders of begu....
Also having served the same amount of time as Stuart in the medicines and healthcare products industries, Sunil has a deep understanding of the requirements for maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Although not in need of weight loss himself, there has been a constant struggle through the years with unhealthy eating due to emotional triggers such as tiredness and stress and powerful cravings from leading a busy lifestyle of work and family, which is so typical to modern living. Sunil is another co-founder of begu, developed with Stuart in part to get his own diet and lifestyle back on track.
Ross has over 14 years experience in the health and fitness industry. He holds a diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training as well as in Nutrition, Weight Management and Sports Massage Therapy. After spending time training and qualifying for the Marines, he certainly knows what it takes to succeed, both physically and mentally! Ross takes pride in developing tailored plans based on each of his individual client’s needs and requirements from both a fitness and nutrition point of view. He recognises the importance of fuelling the body correctly with the best food possible to encourage effective and sustainable weight control.
From working with a diverse range of people over many years, in terms of age, weight, fitness, strength, injuries and motivation, he has a comprehensive understanding of the difficulties and challenges we routinely face with nutrition, health and fitness, and the intimate relationship they have with each other. This has naturally led to his involvement with begu.
Ross and begu have developed a series of short instructional videos for easy to perform exercises, that do not require equipment and can be done anytime and anywhere. You don’t have to already be a keen gym goer, these exercises are perfect for novice and experienced alike. He knows how hard it can be to get started, with so much advice out there, so a series of workouts have been devised, depending on how easy or hard you want to train, and what part of your body you want to focus on.
Keep watching this space though as we’re working on more advanced helpful videos and routines to work with begunutrition and begutea to get you where you want to be.

Ann has a strong passion for working with people helping them change their behaviours to regain control of their health and well-being, and to achieve their own goals, ultimately gaining confidence and happiness in themselves.In her work with weight management clients she combines her skills and knowledge from nutritional therapy, hypnotherapy, coaching and NLP to work with them to explore their relationship with food and to identify their eating patterns and triggers.
Her particular interest in resolving emotional eating behaviours which can manifest as both feasting or grazing, depending on the origin of the problem and the particular emotion being dealt with, has led to the collaboration with begu. At begu we also recognize that weight gain can be attributed to multiple factors for each individual. It is not only poor food and drink choices made through a lack of knowledge about healthy eating, or through limited or non-targeted exercise, significant factors such as emotional & behavioural issues, personality, lifestyle, biochemical, genetic-driven tendencies all can leave you at risk.
Ann has worked closely with begu to develop our short DIET CHECKER to identify the likely cause of weight gain. begu uses this knowledge to provide general and specific dietary recommendations. Coupled with our targeted teas, whatever situation you find yourself in, you are empowered to make the right choices. This is a sustainable lifestyle change. You no longer need to be confused by the vast array of conflicting or changing advice out there, or try yet another fad diet.
Ann is a qualified nutritional therapist. You can find out more about Ann and her work at her website: www.gettingyouthere.co.uk.
