Sudden weight loss without a reason can be sign of a health problem. If you are overweight it is necessary to work on losing weight but losing weight without working out and without day to day stress could be sign of some abnormalities.

DIABETES: This is when the sugar in the blood becomes high. Insulin is a hormone your body makes to turn blood sugar into energy. In Type 1 diabetes the patient is not producing insulin while in type 2 there is production but the patient can’t use it the way he or she need to.

Weight loss occurs when the cells run out of fuel, the body think it’s starving and starts burning fat and muscle. This causes you lose weight

CELIAC DISEASE: This disease is related to gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains like beans. It is also present in Milo (beverage).

MEDICATIONS: Some drugs used to treat health conditions may ramp up your metabolism so you burn more calories or probably make you less hungry. Example of such drugs include

STRESS: My Lagos people, this is the major reason why a lot of you lose weight. The stress of waking up as early as 5am to avoid traffic and getting back home 7pm -8pm after spending several hours in traffic is enough to make you lose some pounds

Psychological stress due to workload, mental state, family or marriage issues is also a clue to why you are losing weight

CANCER: cancer cells make you burn more calories due to the stress imposed on the immune system. The cancer cells make use of your energy and make chemicals that change the way you digest food. Overall it makes your body burn more calories which can lead to weight loss.

And when you drink enough water you may be less likely to grab sodas, juices or coffee drinks packed with sugar. High calories in sweet drink can add up to a big weight gain. when the urge to drink water is much you need to talk to your doctor
