Get Your Life Back

We know how frustrating and demoralising it can be to live with a debilitating gut disease or chronic health condition and restrictive dietary guidelines. We’ve been there. And we’ve come out the other side.

When a medical diagnosis turns your relationship with food on its head, eating a healthy diet can be hard. Making it appetising is even harder. And managing it all within the constraints of a busy life, well, that can feel impossible.

But it isn’t. And we’ll show you how. No flaky science. Just a personalised, practical plan that works for you.

How It Works

Whether you choose the Breakthrough Program or the Transformation Program, you’ll begin with a 1.5 hour consultation. This session will work out what you want and why and will develop some actionable steps you can to take immediately.

You’ll then work with Savvy Belly to develop a personalised plan to suit your lifestyle and dietary requirements. So you know how you will get to where you want.

With regular one-on-one coaching sessions throughout the program to help you track your progress and reach your goals, Savvy Belly will help you to live your life on your terms.

Get in touch to find out more about our programs and to discuss which one’s right for you.

Before I would describe myself as someone who was angry about the difficulties of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and seeing the situation as a limitation and as a negative experience.


I am amazed at how much better I feel after making small changes to my diet that I would have found impossible without Tracie’s help and support.


Having worked with Tracie over a long period and in a variety of roles, I know that she can be relied upon to drive change and deliver results.


It is Tracie’s practical experience and the high degree of care and commitment she brings to the table that make her so valuable.


I am no longer putting up with something in my life that I had allowed to continue for too long. Tracie put me at ease immediately, we explored the issue and how it could be overcome.


Tracie McDougall

As a Health and Wellness Coach, I love working with people who are living with a chronic illness like IBS or eczema.

I have been where you are and I know what it is like to feel like you might never get better, you might never have any sort of life again.

I can tell you it is possible.

I created Savvy Belly after being diagnosed with a complex gut condition (google FPIES!, leaky gut, eczema).  I am a Mum of two with a busy life and I found myself with strict dietary restrictions and I was totally overwhelmed.

Beyond my diagnosis, there was no practical support to help me live with my condition.

As an Engineer in my previous life, I love using my structured, process but heart driven detective skills to help people get on top of their gut issues, get more energy and live a thriving life instead of just getting by.

I share with you what I have learned, my passion for ‘food as medicine’ through Savvy Belly, enabling you to eat healthily, live happily and thrive with your medical condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not very organised, how can I do this?

That’s why Savvy Belly is here – to make it do-able. Beyond your consultations, we will support you as you implement your plan, with systems that enable you to set achievable goals, track your progress and develop your understanding of what works for you.

Will you provide a treatment plan?

No, we are not health practitioners, so we can’t provide a treatment plan for your condition. We can organise Hair Tissue Analysis that will give some insight into what is happening in your body and will outline some recommended supplements as determined by a qualified medical practitioner.  We then use these results and follow up testing to track your improvements over time.  Savvy Belly is here to give you the practical advice, tools and confidence you need to live healthily and happily with your condition.

Who is this program suitable for?

Anyone over the age of 18 who needs to make a lasting, sustainable change for the sake of their health. Anyone who has been given a diagnosis by their health practitioner and does not know where to start or what to do or is struggling to make progress. Anyone who wants their life to be about more than their condition, that wants to live a healthy, thriving, joyful life.  Savvy Belly’s programs have been used by people who have an autoimmune condition, chronic skin condition or chronic gut conditions, such as leaky gut.

Can allergies be accommodated?

Savvy Belly recipes include nuts and eggs. However, the programs are focused on providing a system, structure and process for change, so we can incorporate food substitutes where required.

Where are you based?

Savvy Belly is based in Perth, Western Australia, however, sessions can be conducted anywhere so it doesn’t matter where you are based. Sessions can be in person, over the telephone or via Zoom, Skype or FaceTime.

Got a question?

We understand how confusing it can be if you have a diagnosis and a set of restrictive dietary guidelines, but no idea how to live with them. So, reach out and discover how to eat healthily, live happily and actively thrive with your condition.
