BetterByDesign Nutrition

I’m Joy Kiddie and I am a Registered Dietitian from Vancouver, Canada with a post graduate degree in Human Nutrition, and I have been in private practice since 2008. I am passionate about helping people feel better, recover their health, and achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and I have the experience to guide you through the various dietary options. I tailor services to your specific clinical, cultural and nutritional needs.

I am experienced helping people who have been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, as well as for those with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). I am also very experienced helping those with various types of food allergies and sensitivities, as well as different types of food intolerance including Celiac disease, and lesser-known intolerance such as histamine and tyramine intolerance.  

I support healthy eating for people at all stages of the life-cycle, including children over the age of 6 years, youth up to age 19 years, adults of all ages, seniors, and women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.

I design individualized Meal Plans to help people pursuing healthy eating, weight loss or gain, and for those seeking to put chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol into remission. I support a range of evidence-based approaches, including whole food predominantly plant based (vegetarian, pescatarian), Mediterranean, and have over 5 years experience supporting low carb and ketogenic (keto) lifestyles.

I will design a Meal Plan for you based on your needs — including your personal medical history, any medications you may take, family risk factors, and will also take into consideration your food likes and dislikes, any religious or cultural dietary restrictions, time constraints, as well as meal preparation ability. I provide a wide range of services available on an hourly basis and as packages, including the very popular all-inclusive Complete Assessment Package.

Nutrition is BetterByDesign.
