BetterByDesign Nutrition

Are you looking to feel better, lose weight or improve your health?  I can help.

I’m Joy Kiddie, a Registered Dietitian in full-time clinical practice in Coquitlam, British Columbia, and I am passionate about helping people feel better and recover their health.  I’ve been in private practice since 2008 and enjoy working with people of all ages.

I am very familiar with the foods and cultural practices of many regions of Asia and South Asia, North Africa, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean which helps me to provide you with nutrition services in a culturally relevant manner.

I have years of experience helping people successfully lose weight and keep it off without feeling hungry and without needing to weigh and measure food.  I routinely help people improve their blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure and provide support for those seeking to put symptoms of type 2 diabetes into remission. I also provide support to those seeking to improve symptoms associated with PCOS.

I teach people how to improve the symptoms of gout, early Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), kidney stones, GERD, migraines, diverticulosis, hiatus hernia, and histamine or tyramine intolerance. I also support those diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Celiac disease, as well as those with food allergies and food sensitivities.

Detailed information about the various packages and hourly consultations I provide is available under the services tab.

I offer a range of evidence-based approaches, including vegetarian, pescatarian, a Mediterranean diet, and I have over five years of experience providing low carb and ketogenic (keto) services.

I’d be happy to guide you through the various dietary options available and help you select the approach you feel is best suited to you.
