Dr Oz: Healthy Restaurant Meals
Dr Oz gave same great tips on how to Dress Skinny, but now we need to know what to eat to lose weight! On today’s show, Doctor Oz brought out Restaurateur, Scott Conant and Food Critic, Danyell Freeman to demonstrate how you can eat healthy foods while still eating out. Dr Oz researched and picked 5 of your favorite chain restaurants. When it came to taste, Dr Oz had Danyell and Scott check out the healthiest and tastiest dishes. The 5 restaurants included Applebee’s, Olive Garden, Ruby Tuesday, Red Lobster and Pizzaria Uno. (Dr Oz had no relations to any of these restaurants.)
