I’m Joy Kiddie and I am a Registered Dietitian from Vancouver, Canada that has been in private practice since 2008.
I have a post-graduate degree in Human Nutrition and more than 5 years’ experience helping people follow low carb and ketogenic diets.
I am able to provide virtual dietetic services to people from every province and territory in Canada, except Quebec and PEI and also provide non-clinical nutrition education services to those outside of Canada.
[Pour les services en français, appuyez la diététiste pour l’alimentation faible en glucides ou cétogènes.]
I help people with healthy eating, weight loss or weight / muscle gain and those seeking to put chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol into remission.
The Meal Plans I design are based on your specific needs and goals and take into consideration your medical history, family risk factors, any medications you may take, food likes and dislikes, religious and cultural dietary restrictions, as even whether you like to cook, or not.
I also design therapeutic ketogenic diets for seizure disorder (adults), as adjunct treatment in glioblastoma, and for those seeking improved quality of life outcomes in some neurological diseases.
Some people’s conditions necessitate a very high fat approach with high ketone production, whereas others may do better with a high protein to energy ratio (P:E). I am experienced in designing both.
There is no one-sized-fits-all low carb or ketogenic diet!©
