There are many sentences regarding the idiom ''you never know'' but i want to know particularly for these sentences.
Where using *is* is correct.
1) you never know which food is helping you in controlling your weight.?
2) you never know which good deed is saving you?

See above.

I've corrected the capitalisation and grammar errors but they're not really natural uses of "You never know".

You never know when you might be hit by a bus so make the most of every day.
You never know when your relationship might end so enjoy every second of it.
