For parents, children can sometimes serve as a powerful source of inspiration to become our best selves. That was the case for Avery Hunter, who was inspired by his daughter—an avid runner who frequently runs 5K and 10K races and even marathons. While Avery says he was motivated by his daughter’s drive to run, he felt that at 268 pounds, he’d never be able to keep up with her pace. He knew something had to change.

That’s when Avery turned to Nutrisystem.

Avery’s goal was to lose at least 50 pounds so that he could not only start running with his daughter, but he could maintain the same pace. He wanted to be able to feel good about running—not feel held back by extra weight.

“I Didn’t Expect to LOVE the Food”

Upon starting her Nutrisystem journey, Avery says he was surprised by how much he enjoyed all of the food. After all, so often people assume that eating healthier will mean losing all of the joy they’ve had with food—but that’s certainly not the case with a program like Nutrisystem.

“My first month, I was blown away because the foods were amazing and very delicious,” Avery says. “The foods were always packed very nicely and always delivered on time.”

Avery adds that he’s also found the service to be excellent, as well. From that initial call to the times he’s needed to rely on one of our nutritionists, Avery says he has always felt supported.
