About
  • I’m Joy Kiddie, a full-time Registered Dietitian (RD) with a post-graduate degree in Human Nutrition. I have been in private practice in Coquitlam, British Columbia since 2008, and have provided virtual services for over a decade to those living locally, and in other areas of the country.

    With licenses in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, I provide routine services including healthy eating, weight management (loss or gain), improving high cholesterol, blood sugar and pressure, diabetes management, improving fatty liver disease, and conquering food cravings.

    My expertise extends to digestive health. I provide support for individuals with food allergies, food sensitivities, as well as those newly diagnosed with celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, or various types of colitis.

    I offer customized support for women’s health, designing Meal Plans for prenatal care, PCOS, and menopause management. Additionally, I provide comprehensive services for men’s health, with nearly half of my clients being men. In addition, I develop personalized Meal Plans for older adults, focusing on maintaining muscle and bone mass.

    With years of experience in therapeutic ketogenic diets, I design Meal Plans as adjunct treatment in specific physical or mental health conditions.

    I am honored to have been recognized as one of Coquitlam’s top three businesses for weight loss in 2024. I am very appreciative for the consistently high reviews I have received on Google over the last few years for a wide range of services from ~60 of my former clients. I continue to strive for excellence in the services that I provide my clients.

    I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach, but that Nutrition is BetterByDesign©.

     

    MULTICULTURAL MEAL PLANS
    I specialize in multicultural Meal Plans and have in-depth knowledge of the food and cultural practices from many regions of Asia and South Asia, North Africa, the Caribbean, Middle East and the Mediterranean.

Interesting Facts

In March 2017, I was at a crossroads with respect to my own health. It was more like a crisis. I lost 55 pounds and 12 inches off my waist, and put my high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes into remission. In August 2022, I was diagnosed with profound hypothyroidism and have since changed my lifestyle once again to best support my health. You could say that I understand weight loss and health recovery from both sides of the clinical desk.
