BetterByDesign Nutrition

I’m Joy Kiddie, a full-time Registered Dietitian who has been in clinical practice in British Columbia since 2008, and have been providing virtual services across Canada for a decade.

I am passionate about helping people feel better, restore their health, and achieve sustainable weight loss. 

I support people with GI disorders, including celiac disease, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. For those struggling with IBS symptoms, I have several different approaches to draw from, including a low-FODMAP diet,  modifications to the diet to improve the gut microbiome, as well as lifestyle changes to increase vagus nerve activation. 

I also help people with food allergies and food sensitivities, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, PCOS, and those with autoimmune conditions, including hypothyroidism.

I have more than five years experience teaching low-carb and ketogenic (keto) diets for weight loss and health improvements, as well as for therapeutic purposes.

I provide nutrition education for people diagnosed with gout, Early Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), GERD, diverticulitis / diverticulosis, and hiatus hernia and teach different dietary modifications that may have been recommended by your doctor. 

There is no one-size-fits-all meal pattern, so I offer a range of evidence-based dietary approaches.

I work with adults of all ages and stages of life, including individuals, couples, and multiple members of the same family. I provide expectant mothers with prenatal nutrition and support their nutritional needs once their baby is born. I also work with children over the age of six, youth and young adults.

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 nutrition services in a culturally relevant manner. I am very comfortable working with people with religious, cultural or ethical dietary restrictions.
