It is usual for a human body to undergo minor weight fluctuations. However, if you’re losing weight without changing your lifestyle or by intentionally reducing your food intake, something else ( Abnormal) might be going on inside your body.
Much as excessive weight gain is indicative of abnormal health, So is sudden or Unintended weight loss. An unexplained drop in your average weight warrants medical consultation. Weight loss to the tune of 6 kg or more in say under six months is indicative of Not-all-is-well-with-your-body. It requires a comprehensive evaluation to pin down and treat the cause of such weight loss.
