The REID Diet is based on whole foods in the right proportions. The beauty of creating a diet from whole foods is that nutrient content in whole foods is overlapping, and one food often satisfies a number of nutritional needs from different food groups. For example, nuts possess three food groups – protein, fiber, and fats.
In the REID program, you will get your nutrients from vegetables first and foremost, and then from the other food groups – equally important, but in lesser quantities.
The REID Perfect Plate food proportions recommended by Dr. Katherine Reid, PhD are 75% Raw & Cooked “High Fiber” Vegetables, 15% Protein and Fats, and 10% Dietary Fiber Resistant-Starch and Fruits.
