    Eat more. If that doesn't work, call a doctor. You might have digestion issues.

    Do not delay and book a doctors appointment or go into a walk in clinic, it could be a symptom for an underlying condition.

    How much weight are you losing? If it's >1-2 lbs per week then definitely see a doctor as that's serious weight loss. If not, it could be more mild and able to be treated at home.

    Perhaps a tapeworm? I'm not a doctor though so you shouldn't take this seriously!

    Get a doctor appointment asap!
