Practising What I Teach
In March 2017, I was at a crossroads with respect to my own health. It was more accurately, a crisis. I knew that I would either have to change the way I ate, or would need to go on several types of medications to address high blood sugar, high cholesterol and very high blood pressure. The day I made the decision was March 5, 2017 and I’ve never looked back.
Over the following two years, I lost substantial weight and put my Type 2 Diabetes and high blood pressure into remission.
Even though I knew what to do, I had to do it just like anyone else and my passion is to help others to do the same.
Here it is a year later, and I have maintained my weight loss and health recovery.
Keep in mind that everybody has different nutritional needs and medical background, so each individual’s ‘journey’ will be different than mine.
Clinical hours are weekdays 9:00 AM to 5:00* PM (*3:00 PM on Fridays).
Earlier appointments can be arranged on some days.

(5 stars) “I should have met years ago with a dietitian!! Joy was very detailed in explaining the changes I have to make in my daily diet to become healthier and she made it easy and comprehensible. She is working with my daughter which is a plus as we can both become healthier together while making sure there is a focus on my 13 yr old who is still growing. I am very happy to have found Joy Kiddie 🙂 “ ~ Angela Seldner
(5 stars) “I was hesitant to take the online sessions but honestly it turns out it is all I need. Dr Joy is very knowledgeable and helpful, she explains every risk & every benefit thoroughly so you understand and believe in the life style you pursue. in addition to the meal plan she gave me a lot of useful tips to maintain a healthy life style. If you are looking to lose weight or adopting a healthy life style I would strongly recommend Dr. Joy’s services” ~ Mohamed Hassan
(5 stars) “Joy was very thorough in her approach. She worked with us and gave us options using the foods we liked. My husband started his diet a couple weeks ago (which is similar to mine, just a couple variations so we can plan meals together). He has already lost over 7 pounds which is fantastic. I only started a few days ago but I am feeling much better and really motivated. What I really liked is that any negative comment that we made which could derail the diet, she was always very positive and provided us with reasons and options to follow it. Looking forward to monitoring our progress over the next month.” ~ Janine O.
(5 stars) “Joy was highly recommended to me last summer for help with my pre-diabetes, IBS and Lymphatic colitis. She gave me an excellent food plan and great tips specifically tailored for my health issues. Since that time I have had no flare ups, less bloating and have lost weight and inches. She knows her stuff and can relate to individual client’s needs.” ~ Jennifer MacMillan
(5 stars) “Joy was a pleasure to work with and was very knowledgeable about nutrition. She is extremely thorough in her approach to your health and takes your goals into consideration when consulting with you. I would and have recommended her services.”~ Sharon Perry
(5 stars) “I had an initial online consultation with Joy in Feb 2019. My family history is significant for T2DM. Although I am a healthy, thin, and very active middle age woman, I had concerns about insulin resistance & getting T2DM. I learned so much from Joy. My consults with her were well worth my time & the cost. She is a wealth of information. She walks the walk & has reversed her own struggles with weight, blood sugar & blood pressure. I am proud to report that one year after consulting with Joy, I no longer take blood pressure medication & my fasting blood sugars are in the 90’s for the first time in a very long time. I highly recommend her!!”~ Anna Dowd
(5 stars) “BBD nutrition did a lot to help both my boyfriend and I. She was incredibly kind, professional, and easy to talk to about sensitive and embarrassing issues. She offered support from day one, and pointed us to many references to help along the way. We highly recommend for both the knowledge and kindness we experienced.”~Bryanna MacDonald
