"I have struggled with weight issues my entire life. I did not realize how my eating habits not only affected my weight, but also had a tremendous impact on the quality of my sleep and increasing inflammation that made it hard for me to move without pain. George's expert guidance throughout WILDFIT was life changing for me. He was there each step of the way to help provide insight and wisdom that maximized my success in the program. The first dramatic change came through sleep: I can't remember the last time I slept so deeply through the night. I had forgotten what it felt like to be well rested. Next, the inflammation that I had accepted as part of the aging process slowly disappeared. I could wake up in the morning without feeling sore and not needing several hours to work out the pain in my back. Finally, I released the weight. The difference between this process and the dozens of other diets that I had done was that WILDFIT reshaped both my mind and body. I no longer crave the same foods that I now know will make me feel sick and cause weight gain. I finally feel confident that I can make good choices moving forward to allow me to continue my journey towards becoming my best self. I am grateful for George's dedication, patience, and excellent care. His attention to detail and ability to listen, process and provide meaningful feedback resulted in my having a tailored experience that has been personal, lasting, and impactful."

"So...if someone told me that I would give up my sacred morning pot of tea, my dark chocolate at night, and drink a green goo in the morning and love it...I would say, “that ain’t me”! Well...with the incredibly subtle leadership and sage advice of my coach Dr. George Cheng...I did it. I came to Wildfit with the desire to clean up my food and get optimal utilization of what I was putting in my body. If I lost weight, that would be a by-product, not the goal. I did lose weight going from 126 lbs to 113 lbs. A few of my main ailments were trouble sleeping and body pain. Eating in such a clean way eradicated the inflammation which was the driver of the body pain. Eliminating sugar from carbs or chocolate was a huge lift in my ability to sleep well. Another bonus is my energy and focus throughout the day, both dramatically improved. This was all brought about with Dr. Cheng's guidance, he helped me mentally and physically chart “why do I want this food”? “Does it taste really great past bite three”? “Now that I have eaten it, how do I feel”? Pondering these questions and feeling the effects and repercussions of the different food choices I would put my body through, I would take a break from things. I did this for the reason of what it was doing to me, not “‘oh this is bad for me.” I now make healthy choices because I want to feel great. Dr. Cheng has a saying, “nothing tastes as good as good health feels.” I was able to shift because I found Dr. Cheng and the support group very helpful as a whole. I came to understand that this is a journey, not bad or good, just a willingness to be constant for reasons of optimal health and vitality. This is not a diet in the sense of you are on it for 90 days and then shift back to the ways of old. No, this is a lifestyle change that will benefit my body for the rest of my life. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to modify in a small or large way their health and well being. "

"I had my annual meeting with Dr. Cheng, my radiation oncologist. During the conversation I mentioned my uncontrollable weight gain, tiredness, sore joints, and uncontrolled blood sugar. We got talking about food and diet, and he suggested I read the link he would send to me. I did and found the WILDFIT 90 Day Challenge is what I needed. Eating habits and the psychology of eating. I proceeded to sign-up and Dr. Cheng now became George. George is so supportive during the 90 day program. Very intelligent, supportive, well read and really easy to dialog with...He instructs you and is truly concerned about you as an individual and the process learning... The program has changed my life.

"I was very fortunate to have had Dr. George Cheng as my WILDFIT coach during the 90-day challenge. As a Radiation Oncologist, he is taking time out of his busy schedule to coach WILDFIT because he deeply believes in its benefits which include the prevention of cancer. Dr. Cheng’s credentials are hard to beat; MD Harvard Medical School, MS in Mechanical Engineering from MIT and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from MIT. He really understands physiology from both a biological and engineering perspective. Being an engineer myself, I had many questions that Dr. Cheng answered in a way I could understand. He went out of his way to quickly answer all group member’s questions and he provided a lot of additional resources (recipes, links to research papers, etc.).Prior to the 90-day WildFit challenge, I believed that exercise was the main path to weight loss. I also thought I ate a reasonably healthy diet. After many years of trying to exercise off the fat around my midsection, at 60 years old I had pretty much given up. Going through the WILDFIT challenge was a complete life changing experience. Everything I thought I knew about diet was wrong. I lost the fat around my midsection in 8 weeks. I now have more energy, I sleep better and I have far less aches and pains. I feel like I’m in my 30s. Going through the challenge with a coach is greatly beneficial and if you can get Dr. Cheng as a coach, consider yourself very lucky!"

"When we first started our WILDFIT journey we didn’t know what to expect - we were certain, however, that we were in good hands with George and he made it easy to trust the process. If you have weight to release or just want to reset your approach to nutrition, meal-planning, and how you actually feel about your relationship with food, George will help you get there and hold you accountable through the process.His medical background and experiential knowledge substantiated the fundamentals of the program in such a way that helped us understand and persevere through the challenge. We really appreciate how we think about our health, read ingredient labels, and balance the way we feel about our cravings versus real food needs. Can’t say enough good things about George’s calm ability to guide us practically and effectively through this program. "

"I have been with WILDFIT from August to November, 2020 with my coach George. I have to say this is one of the best decisions made in my life. I am a busy healthcare processional, with a lot of stress, bad eating habit with gaining weight, not feeling well in general. With the program, I have managed to lose 25 pounds within 3 months! And I am feeling great with lots of energy. There is no more problem falling asleep and I wake up fresh every day. The best part of my experience with the program is that I have the greatest coach on my side. George is very knowledgeable, patient and especially passionate about the program. Plus, he is a physician (radiation oncology) himself, I felt like I have a private doctor guiding me through the whole program. There will be some changes during the program due to the changes of nutrition intake. With a doctor in the group, we all feel comfortable dealing with some of the medical and physical changes without worry. George is always available whenever we need him, through E-mail, Face book and Zoom. He remembers everyone’s progress by heart! Thus, I highly recommend the program to anyone. I am particularly grateful to my coach, Dr. George. This is not a diet program; it is a life-changing journey."

"George made WILDFIT a very smooth and easy transition that values a person's psychological and physical health, checking in with me every step of the process. He does an amazing job at balancing the listening to our struggles with food, giving his honest constructive feedback and coming up with solutions. He adapts the plan to each individuals unique needs, all in a way that never feels imposing or restrictive. He has great knowledge of the program, nutrition, and personal experiences of others and his own all of who are on a similar journey. He helped immensely with removing the "diet" and destructive mentality, and instead learn to mindfully focus and add on the nutrition our body needs. He also does a great job at helping everybody become very aware of their mental and inner verbal dialogues that often run in the background but determine our entire relationship to food and how to change that for the best. Overall working with George was a very positive and transformative experience that really helped me with my own mental and physical habits as it came to food. It's not just about losing weight, but cultivating good core awareness and habits that make health a natural choice, rather than one that feels forced. I would recommend working with him and this program over any other."

I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Cheng (George) from opposite ends of the healing spectrum. On the defensive side, George was my radiation oncologist in 2012 and he was instrumental in saving my life. On the proactive side, George introduced me to WILDFIT in 2021, which has significantly improved my life. I was initially skeptical about whether WILDFIT could add any real value as I already felt reasonably fit and believed I was eating well. In retrospect, I knew very little about nutrition and had no idea about how much better I could feel. The knowledge, new habits, and results developed over a three-month commitment to WILDFIT have been remarkable. I didn’t go into the program to lose weight but lost ten pounds the first month. More importantly, my blood pressure has dropped to levels I have never seen before, and my energy level has doubled and is sustainable throughout the day. George was an excellent coach and very generous with his time and knowledge. Overall, the WILDFIT challenge has provided an outstanding return on investment.
