ABOUT BEST BODY BY BRY
Best Body by Bry is a movement on a mission to educate and inspire YOU to lead a healthy lifestyle with Ghanaian food.
Ghana is home to some of the most nutritious foods on earth however, in trying to lead a healthy lifestyle, we turn to “mainstream” healthy foods such as quinoa, kale or berries, which although nutritious, are not typically grown on local Ghanaian soil.
Our vision is for Ghanaian foods to be viewed and utilised as solutions to health and weight management issues globally.
Best Body by Bry aims to contribute towards Sustainable Development Goal 3- Good Health and Well-Being.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Best Body by Bry was founded in 2014 by Bryanne Hackman- humanitarian, foodie and certified nutrition coach. Bryanne’s enthusiasm for health and fitness was ignited, as silly as it sounds, after eating four bags of crisps in under 15 minutes at the age of 14. Although she was never overweight, she hated the lethargic feeling she felt after eating those crisps and as a result, started making healthier nutritional choices and exercising.
She soon started to see improvements in her physical appearance and not to mention, an added self- confidence. After helping friends and family to lose weight and adopt healthier lifestyles, she discovered a deep desire to help other people look and feel their best. In 2014, in her second year at university, Bryanne launched Best Body by Bry as a blog to share healthy recipes, lifestyle tips and exercise routines. She also started experimenting with Ghanaian flavours in an attempt to incorporate her favourite local foods into her healthy diet, particularly plantain, her favourite food till date!
In 2018, Bryanne qualified as a Nutrition and Weight Management Coach under the Association for Nutrition in the UK in order to further understand the nutritional benefits behind food and how foods can enable individuals to lead healthy lifestyles and achieve their weight goals. Her other areas of expertise include- Nutrition for Sports and Exercise, Childhood Nutrition and Obesity Prevention, Behaviour Change Coaching and Eating to Gain.
Today, Bryanne lives and works in Accra and desires to carry out Best Body by Bry’s mission.
