Tito began his journey into healthy living at a very young age. At age 15, Tito woke up one morning to discover a lump on his neck. He knew something was wrong and his mother quickly took him to see a physician. The news that Tito received was chilling and far from anything anyone wants to hear, especially a teenager. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease, a form of lymph node cancer. Tito was in shock initially, but he innately knew that he would make it through the diagnosis. His faith in God was unwavering and he had the support of his family through and through. Another tremendous motivation for Tito in overcoming his diagnosis was the determination to change his lifestyle through healthy choices. Throughout his biweekly chemo treatments, Tito dedicated himself to living the life of a natural bodybuilder and that still continues to this day. He changed the way he exercised and began to educate himself on proper nutrition. During that time he also began seeing a nutritionist who introduced him to natural supplements that aided his body in healing. Fast forward six months past Tito’s diagnosis, he visited his physician again, and he was cancer FREE! From that moment on, Tito decided that eating healthy, exercising and implementing natural supplements would be a way of life for him. This was the origin of his bodybuilding voyage.
In addition to his bodybuilding career, it was just a matter time before Tito Dudley decided to professionally explore the culinary world and eventually become a Natural Food Chef. After graduating from the Natural Gourmet School in NYC, he went on to incorporate his knowledge and creativity into the lives of his clients, as well as his friends & family. He enjoys spending time in the kitchen, whipping together dishes that are not only healthy, but delicious. Oh, did we mention this to you? He is very passionate about food and life!
He lives it and loves it! He is passionate about teaching others how to live healthy lifestyles through organic and clean diets, supplements and safe exercise. It is Tito’s goal to inform everyone who comes across his path of the benefits of clean living. Tito doesn’t believe in ‘dieting’ but rather to live a healthier lifestyle. What does that mean? Well, always making sure to incorporate whole foods, plant based foods, a substantial amount of animal protein, a minimal amount of dairy and staying away from highly processed foods.
Over the last few years, Tito has had the privilege of cooking for some amazing organizations. These include The JCC in Manhattan, First Descents, The Palette Foundation, a premiere sushi restaurant, a Danish restaurant called Aamann Copenhagen, Tu Lu’s Bakery, and many clients in the entertainment and financial industry. These experiences have molded Tito into a well-rounded and experienced chef, and his true passion for helping others contributed to his commitment to continue to create simple, delicious, and nutritious food.
