Interview with a Physician Specializing in Obesity Medicine

Last week I was interviewed by Dr. Siobhan Key, an MD that specializes in obesity medicine who founded a weight management group called Weight Solutions for Physicians that provides weight management coaching to fellow physicians. She is certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine, and is a member of the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA), the Doctors of BC and the Canadian Medical Association.

Weight Solutions for Physicians

Siobhan struggled with her own weight in the past and understands the specific challenges that physicians face being on-call as well as having busy practice and home lives.

In this interview I provide tips for people seeking to lose weight on a low carbohydrate diet, as well as practical ideas for getting whole food meals for people that lack the time to cook.

I hope you enjoy this interview and be sure to visit iTunes to leave a review.

CBC Interview with a Low Carb Physician – 5 minutes and all the basics

Dr. Miriam Berchuk is a Calgary-area physician and an active member of the Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition who was interviewed today (June 11, 2018) on CBC Radio (Calgary Eyeopener) about her personal use and promotion of a Low Carb diet for weight loss and specific metabolic conditions related to insulin resistance.

While the interview lasts just a touch over 5 minutes, everything that one needs to know to understand what a low carb diet is (and isn’t!) is clear, as well as when medical supervision should be sought.

If you want to know the basics or are having a difficult time explaining it to others, Dr. Berchuk’s interview should be very helpful.

Keto 153 – Interview with Joy Kiddie, the LCHF-Dietitian from Ketovangelist

For those who are curious about my background and how I came to practice and support the use of a therapeutic low carb and ketogenic diet, here is the interview that was done by Brian Williamson, from Ketovangelist just this past week (May 1 2018).

The interview lasts just over an hour (there’s a short commercial at the beginning and end of the interview) and begins with discussing my research, findings and publication in a peer-reviewed journal in the area of mental health nutrition (specifically micronutrient intake and dietary intake in ADHD) and how that research background contributed to my approach to using a low carbohydrate and ketogenic diet in therapeutic nutrition.

During the interview, Brian and I discussed several areas, including the politics of nutrition, changes in Dietary Guidelines in both the US and Canada in 1977, the obesity epidemic and the role that I see for individual nutrition in helping those with Type 2 Diabetes and insulin resistance and many of the associated conditions of high blood pressure, high triglycerides / abnormal cholesterol levels and obesity.

Special thanks to Brian Williamson for inviting me and to Chris, his editor for his post-production work.

I hope you enjoy the interview, and feel free to drop me a note through the Contact Me form, if you have any questions on how I can help you, either in-person or via Distance Consultation on Skype.

To our good health!

A Dietitian’s Journey – one of the most popular stories

Last night, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, the founder of Diet Doctor posted on Twitter that they had just updated their “Success Stories” page – encouraging people to;

“have a look at some of the most amazing and inspiring personal stories from the over 600 that we have published.”

I clicked on it, only to discover that my story is 5th in the women over 40 category! There are many incredible stories there, but perhaps what makes my story so popular, is that I am a formerly obese Dietitian.

For those that haven’t yet read my story yet, here is the summary of my progress from March 5, 2017 to March 5, 2018, as it appeared on Diet Doctor on March 14th, 2018;

While my weight loss plateaued for a month as I had begun my resistance training program (gaining muscle and losing fat) my weight loss has resumed once again. This “Dietitian’s Journey” will continue as I have not yet reached a low-risk waist circumference (one where my waist circumference is half my height).  I still have to lose another 3 inches to lose (having already lost 8 inches!), so however many pounds I need to lose to get there, is how much longer I have to go.  I am guessing that will be in about 20-25 pounds which may take another 6 months or so, but I’m not really concerned about the time because this “journey” is about me getting healthy and lowering my risk factors for heart attack and stroke, and any amount of time it takes is what it will take.  It took years to make myself that metabolically unhealthy and it will take time for me to get to a healthy body weight and become as metabolically ‘well’ as possible.

Although I am a Dietitian, I have to lose weight and lower my blood sugar the same way as everyone else does; one pound and one meal at time, but it can be done!

It has been slightly over 10 years since I was diagnosed as having Type 2 Diabetes, and while it may not be possible to reverse my Diabetes because it has been this long, based on the clinical data I’ve seen I will be able to achieve complete and long term remission of symptoms provided I keep doing what I need to do once I achieve it. This is a lifestyle, not a “diet”.  My health and quality of life depend on it.

While I may not be able to reverse my own Type 2 Diabetes, I get the joy (and privilege) of helping those who have been more recently diagnosed work on reversing theirs . Equally rewarding is helping those who have been diagnosed as having pre-Diabetes from ever getting that diagnosis!

If you would like to know how I can help you in this regard, please send me a note using the Contact Me form on this web page and I’ll be glad to answer your questions.

Meanwhile, be encouraged. If I can do it, so can you. You can read my one-year anniversary post here.

To our good health,

Joy

A Dietitian’s Journey – featured on Diet Doctor

Waking up to discover that my story and first anniversary health improvements from “A Dietitian’s Journey” was featured on Diet Doctor today was better than coffee. So timely too, as today is International Dietitian’s Day.

For those that haven’t yet read the story yet (located here) this is a summary;

My one year summary as it appears on Diet Doctor (link below with Tweet)

My journey wasn’t a straight path as it took a little bit of time to figure out which type of low carb diet my body responded to best. I started out with a low carb high fat approach and a few months ago switched to a low carb higher protein approach, along the lines of what Phinney and Volek use with great results (more info on the type of low carb approaches here).

Perhaps you’ve heard people say that a low carb or ketogenic lifestyle is somehow “restrictive”, “imbalanced” or that it’s “not sustainable. This new post titled “Low Carb or Keto – what can you eat?” shows pictures of some of the meals that I currently eat (following a low carb higher protein approach) and also posts links to recipes. You’ll see that it is way more diverse than slabs of meat and piles of bacon and eggs!

If you’ve considered getting started eating low carb or keto but would like personalized support, I can help. Whether you live locally (in British Columbia) or far beyond, I provide both in-person and Distance Consultation services via telephone or internet.

If you have questions, please feel free to drop me a note using the “Contact Me” form above and I will reply soon.

To our good health!
