When we first spoke to Emily Simpson about her daily diet, The Real Housewives of Orange County mom admitted that her hectic lifestyle led her to fuel up on some "random" foods. At the time, she'd eat Pop Tarts and Diet Coke for lunch, then nibble on leftover macaroni and cheese for dinner. But things have taken a notable turn since then.
When Emily began to feel significant hip pain this past summer, she committed to a new eating plan to relieve some of the aching. "I just need to get some weight off to make me feel better," she said at the time. And now that she's at home recuperating after her October 28 hip surgery, the Orange County attorney is still taking a mindful approach to nutrition.
In an Instagram post from November 2, Emily wrote: "To be honest, I was nervous about the surgery, but I learned that specific nutrition BEFORE and AFTER your surgery can play a role in your recovery."
After revealing that she's been sipping nutrition shakes as she recuperates, Emily urged her followers: "If you’re having surgery, talk to your doctor about a nutrition plan that’s right for you."
