The Low Carb Healthy Fat Dietitian

og:imageI’m Joy Kiddie, and I am a full-time Registered Dietitian that has been in private practice in the Vancouver area since 2008. I am passionate about helping people feel better and to restore their health. I not only teach low carb and a keto diet, but I eat that way myself. 

Many people think of “keto” as having lots of fat, and that is certainly true for therapeutic ketogenic diets used for epilepsy and as adjunct treatment in certain types of cancer such as glioblastoma, but for weight loss and for seeking remission of symptoms of type 2 diabetes, there are a range of keto diets that can be successfully used — from low carb high fat, to high protein moderate fat, and everything in between. What makes a diet ‘keto’ is not how much fat it contains, but how much (or rather, how little) carbohydrate it contains. 

For those seeking weight loss, a keto diet is not required. Many people achieve and maintain their weight loss eating low-carb diet and some find that it better suits their lifestyle. Others with long-standing metabolic issues such as type 2 diabetes often do better starting with a keto approach and adjusting their carbohydrate intake as they become healthier. Each person’s needs are different which is why each person’s Meal Plan is too.

If you have not really been successful eating a diet you found online, it may be because it wasn’t designed for you.  It has been my experience that people find it much easier to sustain dietary changes that are developed with their needs in mind, rather than to try to adapt a generic diet to fit their needs. 

I will design a low carb or keto Meal Plan for you — factoring in your medical history, family risk factors, any medications you may take, your food preferences, as well as any religious or cultural dietary restrictions you have. Meal Plans are not carved in stone. They are intended to change as you lose weight, and as your needs change. Updating them is easily done as follow up services on an as-need basis, or as part of a package.

There is no one-sized-fits-all low carb or ketogenic diet!
