In a city filled with delicious foods, we all know the secret to being healthy is balance. Pizza with a side of green juice anyone? We asked our FHITpros what their favorite meals are when they’ve HIT it hard and are ready to indulge in a well-deserved ‘treat yo self’ meal.

Ben - Tacos, chips and guacamole from Tortaria in Greenwich Village.

Mark – He says the best pizza in NYC is from John’s of Bleecker Street, but only if you order your pie half cheese, half pepperoni and onions, with extra sauce, well done.

Daury- His favorite cheat meal is anything his mom cooks. Since we all can’t sample his mom’s home cooking, his favorite spot in NYC is New York Burger Co.; he orders a double cheeseburger with sweet potato fries and chipotle mayo. On the days he wants to treat himself, he goes to the location right around the corner from our Flatiron studio.
