CHEF TIMOTHY We have made the decision to begin and maintain a healthier lifestyle choice. We go to the gym, eat a proper diet and do all the right things to help us get and stay in great physical shape. Still, we face a dilemma – gaining more weight instead of losing it.
We just don't get it. What is going on?
What if the food manufacturers that we have grown to trust have set us up? What if they use an ingredient that's known to create hunger and turn off that part of the brain that regulates if we're satisfied or our stomachs are feeling full?

Author Latrivia S. Nelson has firm roots in Memphis as a graduate of The LeMoyne-Owen College and as a marketing and public relations professional with over 14 years of experience with some of the cities most recognized organizations. She leans on that background to write her steamy love stories and incorporate all things Blues City in her books.
"Memphis is so rich with culture until if I never wrote about another locale in the world, I'd still have plenty of subject matter," said Nelson. "Each day, I find something or someone new to write about. It never gets old or boring. All you have to do is step outside of your door and you're bombarded with notable personalities."
Her latest novel, "The World in Reverse," has topped several Amazon best sellers lists, including #1 for African American Mystery and #1 for organized crime. And it's all about Memphis politics, police and crime.
