WALLINGTON, N.J. -- Samantha Pappas, the registered dietitian at ShopRite in Wallington helped Nutley resident a Nutley man lose more than 70 pounds in seven months.

Rich Kunz also works with Pappas at ShopRite.

“When Rich first came to the Dietitian’s Corner, he was skipping breakfast and lunch, drinking coffee with sugar all day and then going home for a huge dinner,” Pappas said. “Now, Rich eats five MyPlate-inspired meals, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks. He has been working so hard and clearly, it shows. I couldn’t be more proud of him.”

Pappas has provided Kunz with one-on-one nutrition counseling and helped him stay motivated.

“Samantha has been nothing but amazing ever since I walked into the Dietitian’s Corner and asked for help,” noted Kunz. “She recommends a variety of challenges for me, such as trying different vegetables and fruits so I don't get bored with the same foods. She has truly changed my life and words cannot express how thankful I am.”
