    Why am I losing weight?
    An_248538 posted:
    Hey all,

    I am 23 years old. I have developed losing weight and cant seem to stop. I am starting to get worried. This time last year I was 6'2" 180lbs. Currently I am down to 150lbs. I eat consistently, work out well, drink protien shakes and even drink weight gain shakes. No matter what I do I continue to loose weight. Any advice?

    I would see your doctor. Could be a thyroid issue, diabetes, etc.
