The Low Carb Healthy Fat Dietitian

og:imageI’m Joy Kiddie, a full-time Registered Dietitian who has been in clinical practice in British Columbia since 2008 and teaching low carb and keto diets since 2017.  

I not only teach others this way of eating, but eat this way myself. 

Many people come to me because they haven’t been successful following a low carb or keto diet they found online. For some, the diet worked initially and then stopped working, or for different reasons wasn’t sustainable.

While keeping carbohydrate low is essential in a low carb or keto diet, carbs aren’t the only factor that needs to be considered. Protein requirements vary with stage of life, gender and activity level so meeting protein needs has to be done in the context of carb level, with fat adjusted to provide energy needs.  

There is no one-size-fits-all low carb or keto diet.

I will design a low carb or keto Meal Plan based on your specific needs, food preferences, and lifestyle — so that you can accomplish and maintain your weight loss and health gains.

Food categories are carb-based, which will make it possible for you to eat to satiety, while keeping your carbs in range — and you won’t have to use an app to track your carbs. I do the work so you don’t have to.

Sustainable Weight Loss and Improved Health 

One of the main challenges people face when setting out to change how they eat is not wanting to be hungry, and who can blame them? Many people don’t realize that it is actually the foods they eat and when they eat them that are driving their hunger and food cravings, leading to overeating. 

I have years of experience addressing the drivers of hunger and food cravings which enables me to help people lose weight while not feeling hungry— and not feeling hungry is the key. This is what makes weight loss sustainable long term. 

I am knowledgeable with the foods and cultural practices of many regions of Asia and South Asia, North Africa, the Middle East and the Mediterranean which enables me to provide culturally-appropriate food options so that people can continue to eat with their extended families. I am also experienced designing Meal Plans for vegetarians and those with ethical, cultural, or religious food practices. 

There are two ways to get started; the Complete Assessment Package or Hourly Consultation.
