How do I Eat at Restaurants | Eating Out After Bariatric Surgery

Hi, I’m Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics, and I’m here today to go over a few frequently asked questions from our patients. One difficult thing, for a lot of patients, is knowing what to order when you go out to eat in a restaurant. Well the first thing I always recommend is get online or stop by the restaurant itself and check out the menu. Know what you’re going to order before you arrive. Once there order your main dish, your main meat dish, your protein source and get a side of vegetables. As far as dressings, don’t worry about dressing. I prefer my patients choose an olive oil-based dressing and just use it on the side. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact us at Thanks for watching and have a healthy day.
