Joy Y. Kiddie, MSc, RD

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Have you been looking for an experienced Registered Dietitian to help with weight loss or weight gain? Or do you have pre-diabetes or diabetes and want to better control your blood sugar? I can help with these, as well as lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol and to improve the markers of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. I have considerable experience in several areas of digestive health and food allergies and sensitivities. I design prenatal Meal Plans to support pregnant women through all three trimesters of their pregnancy, as well as women struggling with the symptoms of PCOS, or menopause. I am experienced developing anti-inflammatory Meal Plans to help reduce the symptoms associated with some conditions, and my knowledge in designing therapeutic ketogenic diets for mental and physical health is another reason people seek my services.

Registered Dietitian providing support for weight loss, diabetes, menopause and digestive health.I’m Joy Kiddie, a full-time Registered Dietitian (RD) and Registered Nutritionist (RDN) with a post-graduate degree in Human Nutrition. I have been in private practice in Coquitlam, British Columbia since 2008, and have provided virtual services for over a decade to those living locally, and in other areas of the country. I am licensed in several provinces, and my areas of expertise range from the routine, to the clinically complex.

For more than 15 years, I have helped people with weight loss, as well as to improve their metabolic health. I have supported those living with food allergies and food sensitivities, and various digestive disorders. In the past 10 years, I have provided support for women with PCOS, as well as ‘women of a certain age’ who are struggling with the symptoms of menopause. The past 6 years, I have designed therapeutic ketogenic diets as an adjunct treatment for mental, and physical conditions. 

I am passionate about helping people feel better and to restore their health. 

Three Categories of Services

I offer three categories of servicesroutine, digestive and gut health, and therapeutic diets. These are outlined below and elaborated on in detail by clicking on the links.


Routine services include support for healthy eating, weight management, improved metabolic health, prenatal support, and anti-inflammatory diets.

For PCOS and menopause support, please see III – Specialized Therapeutic Diets.

I provide nutrition education on a variety of topics, including improving symptoms of acid reflux / GERD, gout, diverticulosis or diverticulitis, hiatus hernia, kidney stones, migraines, support for those newly diagnosed with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, and those wanting to improve iron status from food. 

There are three ways to get started with routine services for healthy eating, weight loss or gain, pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, and other metabolic conditions.

Multi-Generational Services

I enjoy providing services to adults of all ages and stages of life.

I understand when working with individuals that Meal Plans need to work with the other people they eat with. Since many people live in multi-generational households,  I am comfortable factoring this in when designing Meal Plans. I am experienced with needs of children over the age of six, teens, youth, young adults and seniors, and design prenatal Meal Plans for expectant mothers. 

Whether you are seeking support for healthy eating, weight loss, or for services related to a specialized package, services will be designed for your age and stage of life. 

Multicultural Services

If you are coming to me for weight management, type 2 diabetes support, or specialized packages including a therapeutic ketogenic (keto) diet, services will be provided in a culturally sensitive manner.

I am knowledgeable with the foods and cultural practices of many regions of Asia and South Asia, North Africa, the Caribbean, 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.
