My Tummy Diary FAQs

What is 'My Tummy Diary'?

'My Tummy Diary' is a resource packed gut health and mental health diary designed to help you tune into your gut, body and mind. It's far more than just a food and symptom tracker. It encourages you to look at your lifestyle with a 360 holistic approach, tracking diet, stress, sleep, exercise and more. The three month diary section will help you pinpoint any potential triggers of gut symptoms, and the packed-out resource section will give you all the insight, tools and tips you need to help you on your journey towards a happy gut and happy mind. You can find out more about what it includes here.

Who is 'My Tummy Diary' for?

My Tummy Diary is for anyone who is looking to gain a better understanding of their body and mind and the impact that different lifestyle areas could be having on gut health. With a gut health focus, it is perfect for anyone struggling to pinpoint triggers of their symptoms or for those looking to get more in tune with the workings of their body and improve their gut health.

Is 'My Tummy Diary' only for those with IBS?

Absolutely not, as above it is perfect for anyone who is looking to improve their gut health or get a better understanding of their body, with those who live with IBS included. You can see more of what's included on the 'My Tummy Diary' product page to help you decide whether the diary is right for you.

Is My Tummy Diary only for women?

With hormones and menstrual cycles having a big impact on our body, and often affecting our gut symptoms, I wanted to ensure this was part of the daily diary pages and the information sections. So although anybody at all can use the diary, it has been designed with women in mind. If there is demand we hope to release a gender neutral version very soon!

Do I need a medical diagnosis to use this diary?

You do not need a diagnosis to use this diary, but if you have an undiagnosed issue we highly advise that you use the diary whilst working alongside your GP/specialist/registered dietitian. The diary is approved and accredited by top registered dietitians who have agreed this would be the perfect tool to help aid their client consultations.

Is the diary written by a medical professional?

'My Tummy Diary' was created and written by Lottie Drynan, creator of The Tummy Diaries. Lottie is not a medical professional but has lived with IBS for most of her adult life and shares her experience and personal tips in the diary. However, all information and resources within 'My Tummy Diary' have been created with the help of, and accredited by registered dietitians including Kaitlin Colucci, Erin Judge and therapist Emma Evans to ensure the diary is as accurate as possible. The information within 'My Tummy Diary' should not be used as a replacement of medical advice or to self diagnose- see disclaimer at the bottom of this page for more details.
