About Me

I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences at McGill University in Montreal and received my Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition from University of British Columbia in 2008. I’m registered with the Colleges of Dietitians of British Columbia, of Alberta and of Ontario and am a long-standing member of Dietitians of Canada (DC). I speak both English and French and am listed in the Réso Santé Colombie-Britannique, a directory of French-speaking health professionals.

Practicing what I preach

In March 2017 I was at a crossroads with respect to my own health. It was more accurately, a crisis. I knew that I would either have to change the way I ate or would need to go on several types of medications to address high blood sugar, high cholesterol and very high blood pressure. The day I made the decision was March 5, 2017 and I’ve never looked back. You can find the link to my complete “A Dietitian’s Journey” blog under the Food for Thought tab.

Please keep in mind that everybody has different nutritional needs and medical background, so each individual’s ‘journey’ will be different than mine.

Joy Kiddie MSc,RD uses both professional and personal experience to guide a weight loss/ health journey. Her unique perspective and proven results highlight her abilities. As a pharmacist, I routinely interact with people seeking health improvement whether through weight loss or reversal of medical conditions. Perhaps those people have heard of the low carb approach but do not know where to begin. I have found the LCHF-RD website provides plenty of accessible information from recipes, emerging scientific data, and personal consultation which can be accessed via contacting Joy through her remote service. I highly recommend Joy Kiddie as a knowledgeable, relatable resource for anyone interested in achieving better health through the right nutrition.” ~ L. Reid, Pharmacist:
