BERGENFIELD, N.J. — Brian Juarbe of Bergenfield knows a thing or two about balance.

Some days, the single dad pumps iron at the gym. Others, he scarfs down delectable treats and puts them on Instagram as @MYINNERFATKIDISOUT for his 12,400 followers to see.

Juarbe considers himself lucky that his passions are equal parts exercising and eating. But these days, keeping up with his social media page makes staying in shape rather difficult.

"It's just something I enjoy doing," said Juarbe, 39, of finding the best eats in New Jersey and NYC.

Juarbe launched the page a year ago in addition to his personal account, just to document his favorite eateries.

After two of his "Inner Fat Kid" pictures went viral, people began hitting the "follow" button by the thousands.

"I want to make it about the food," Juarbe said. "I can't eat it alone so my son, who's 14, comes with me and helps sometimes. He's my partner in crime."

Juarbe admits some of it is "food porn," but it doesn't all have to look pretty to be photographed.

It just has to be unique and taste good, he said.

Levain Bakery in NYC is known for its signature chocolate chip cookies and has Juarbe's heart.

He's still got a soft spot for his favorites in Bergen and Passaic counties:

Regardless of how many followers he has, Juarbe plans on posting pictures of his food. And then working it off in the gym.
