Get weekly reviews of healthy restaurants in the NYC metropolitan area from fitness writer and NYC’s most sought after personal trainer- Kevin Richardson. A great resource for everyone, as the tips and guides in food selection can help everyone make better choices when eating out- regardless of where they are!
The question always come up with my personal training clients- can I stay on my diet and still be able to eat out? You see, most of the time we equate eating out as an activity that is not necessarily good for you. Staying on the right track diet wise brings to mind the idea of a Spartan and isolated existence- where food becomes fuel, and taste and satisfaction is secondary to eating according to several preset rules. My philosophy, and that of the Naturally Intense System, is that being healthy has mean eating foods that you want to eat, not just foods that you have to eat, and too often we fail in our attempts to lose weight or improve our health because we see this as being impossible. The good news is that it isn’t. Just because Fettuccine Alfredo may not be the best idea for you when you go out, doesn’t mean that there are not several other selections that you can enjoy.
One great aspect about living in New York City is that there are so many restaurants that offer wholesome and weight loss friendly menu items. It may come as a shock to many that I eat out on at least a weekly basis and stay within the parameters of my ‘diet’- although at this point it really isn’t a diet, it is just a way of living to be honest. But the point is that you just have to know where to go and of course, what to order. My goal is that these weekly blog posts will highlight some of those health-friendly restaurants in the New York City area, as well as provide a template for anyone interested in knowing what to eat, and what not to eat when they go out for lunch or dinner. The way it works is that every week I will post a review of a new restaurant complete with the menu items that I ate, and the ones that fall in line with the Naturally Intense System of Diet & Exercise. (Kind of like a Zagat for eating right.)
The restaurants and food categories will vary from lunch items to dinner items, Mexican cuisine to Asian Fusion- you name it, I will cover it- and the best part is that I have one more excuse to go out with my better half and the kids.
Be sure to subscribe to my blog for the weekly updates (look for them every Friday- so you’ll have some ideas for the weekend) and you can follow along on Twitter as well! Thanks for stopping by and I hope these posts go a long way in helping people overcome any ideas that eating healthy means not being able to enjoy a normal life.
Next Friday log in for our first review- Alma- a true landmark NYC dining spot. You’ll learn just what you can order guilt free. See you in 7!
