Interview with Fred Devito, Co-Founder of Exhale Spa’s Core Fusion Program

I’m addicted to my morning workouts at the Upper East Side Sports Club/LA, so it takes a lot for me to go out of my way to try a fitness class somewhere else, especially in the dead of winter when it’s freezing and the Sports Club/LA is just a two minute walk from my apartment. […]

Pharmacopia for Sore Muscles

I treated myself to a massage at the Peninsula the other day because I had a horrible lower back ache. The massage was incredibly relaxing, then again if you like massages, how could it not be?? When in NYC the Peninsula is hands-down the best place to go for a massage (more spacious and zen […]

Fashion Week Diet: Four Tines and Rawtella

Crazy how time flies! Fashion Week is just a little over a week away and I’m already getting overwhelmed by the back-to-back schedule, early mornings, and late nights ahead…I know that makes me sound old, but I’m a woman who likes her AM gym time, early dinners, and 7 hours of sleep! When it comes […]

Rodial Crash Diet: Will You Try It?

If crash diets, pills, powders, and shakes could effortlessly make us all skinny, we’d all be as thin as we want to be. Sadly as much as we’d like to believe in “magic,” the proof is in the pudding and the only thing that works is good ‘ol diet and exercising. I know that exercising […]

Coconut Water: Yay or Nay?

Given that high cholesterol runs in my family, I’ve stayed away from coconuts for most of my life (if I’m gonna indulge in some high cholesterol eats – ice-cream and cheese, please!), but it’s impossible to ignore the coconut water craze going on right now. A few months ago I watched a special on CNBC […]

Airline Snack & Food Survey

I try to avoid eating on airplanes as much as possible. On my last trip to Cali however I bought the Healthy Snack Box on my Virgin America flight and inside I found a slew of clearly not healthy snacks including chocolate, over-processed cheese, jam, and apple chips…for the most part, gross. I do have […]

BAO Fresh Kombucha

Of course the guys behind BAO Fresh Kombucha are New Yorkers! Who else would totally get the importance of creating nutritious drinks that are not only good for you, but taste great, look cool, and are low in calories? Sure as a life-long Manhattanite I may be biased towards anything local, but BAO’s Kombucha blows […]

Stephanie Levinson’s Workout DVDs

I get made fun of a lot by my friends (and my boyfriend!), because I don’t drink much, prefer going to bed early, and rarely if ever sleep any later than 9am. I keep thinking about something Russell Simmons told Ellen Degeneres which was basically that he rather do yoga in the morning than get […]
