Raise your hand if you’ve ever taken to social media to get advice and it felt like the floodgates opened and you were inundated with responses.

Go on, raise your hand, I’m raising mine too. I think we’ve all been there.

I see questions about weight loss so often and although we want there to be black-and-white answer, the truth is, it depends.
