Timely questions I’d love to have answers to about weight loss.

There is no doubt several metric tonnes of weight loss questions exist. In the quest for answers, some of these questions are put up and eventually featured on health blogs and the diverse health-related social media platforms. For some people, the idea of putting up questions related to their weight loss struggle reeks lack of confidence. Therefore, in lieu of putting up the questions online even under an anonymous guise or seeking advice and support from family, friends or acquaintances, the questions are left in the mental realm.


This article, therefore, is a creative and thoughtful compilation of some daring weight loss questions, some of which most people will not for all the money in the world spill out. Although, if this article were placed on a scale, it obviously will tilt in favour of weight loss questions alone. But in a bid to create a measure of balance, each question will be linked to certain clues or hints about how to access the ideal answers.
