Carlo Filippone

CEO/Chef/Pro Bodybuilding Champion

Carlo Filippone is the President and Founder of Elite Lifestyle Cuisine and a National Champion Bodybuilder. Since 11 years old, Chef Carlo has been at home in the kitchen. His passion for healthy Italian cuisine led to the creation of two successful restaurants — Angelo’s Pizzeria Restaurant and Healthy Meals Café — by the time he turned 35. Now, with more than 25 years of hands-on kitchen experience and over 200 published recipes under his three-time national champion bodybuilder belt, he is bringing his health and wellness background and nutritional philosophy to the world with Elite Lifestyle Cuisine- a gourmet healthy meal service. He’s been recently featured on the Good Day NY Show and has appeared on the Dr. OZ Show.
Carlo grew up in Cliffside Park, New Jersey and now resides just a few miles away in Fort Lee. He attended Bergen Community College and studied accounting; however he quickly realized that his true love was business entrepreneurship. He has continued to pursue his business interests as well as his personal passion for fitness, health and wellness.
Carlo is very active within his local community and is regularly featured as a guest speaker at local schools and other community events. His favorite charity is one that is near and dear to his heart- Autism Speaks. Through Elite Lifestyle Cuisine he has helped raise funding for various events.
A former columnist for MuscleMag International, Carlo is a regular contributor to Muscle and Fitness Magazine and has been seen in numerous publications, including the Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding. He still enjoys working out and spending quality time with his family and loved ones.


In January 2006, in a small café in Fairview, New Jersey, Chef Carlo Filippone embarked on a mission — to help Americans get healthy and combat the ongoing obesity epidemic. Carlo, a fitness enthusiast and internationally recognized food columnist, sought a way to help everyone from active fitness enthusiasts and corporate professionals to stay-at-home caretakers achieve 
better health.

After nearly 20 years in the fitness industry and the restaurant business, close evaluation and analysis had made something very clear to Carlo. He determined that most people’s struggles came not from a lack of exercise, not from a lack of desire to improve, but from being either uninformed as to proper nutrition or not having the culinary skills, ability, or time to prepare properly balanced cuisine.

Carlo knew that there would be only one way to cater to everyone and help them overcome their challenges — through their palate and eating habits! Creating a product line that was tasteful, well balanced and convenient became Carlo’s mission. The process was nothing new to him; he had already spent 10 years serving as a monthly contributor to various international publications.

In that very café in Fairview, New Jersey, Carlo’s vision became reality. His food line has already improved the lives of many and impressed with great taste, enabling his clients to achieve a higher level of health and fitness. As product demand grew, Carlo explored other methods of distribution, and Elite Lifestyle Cuisine was born.

In April 2015, Steve Weatherford was introduced to Carlo. Weatherford, the star punter for the NFL’s New York Giants, has been nicknamed the NFL’s Fittest Man by Muscle and Fitness Magazine, therefore no stranger to being in great shape and maintaining optimal health.

Steve was eager to learn more about Carlo and Elite Lifestyle Cuisine. The pair quickly realized a shared passion for health and wellness which led to a collaboration of ideas; including expansion, company growth, and product development.

In June 2015 Steve and Carlo formed a partnership. Both Steve and Carlo not only stand behind their product, but promise to deliver the highest level of customer satisfaction.

Now produced in a Gold Star award-winning facility, Elite Lifestyle Cuisine proudly serves the entire East Coast and Mid-East Regions of the United States!
