I’ve been going through a difficult time and as a result, my appetite isn’t what it used to be. I have good days where I’ll eat normally, and bad days where ‘coffee’ counts as a meal. As a result, I’ve lost a whole stone in a month. I’m still a healthy weight according to my BMI, but I guess it concerns me that my appetite is so bad and I’ve lost so much weight without trying.

Thinking about seeing a doctor, but I don’t want to waste their time. After all, being sad is notorious for making a person lose their appetite. Thoughts?

If that you're that concerned, see someone.

I would see a doctor and get a blood test to see if you're lacking in anything. They will probably just tell you to eat more but may also be able to offer some support for the difficult time you're going through or some appetite boosters. It is very unsafe to loose a lot of weight in a short amount of time and could effect you in the future so it's worth getting checked out. Also you could just try having small but calorie dense meals or even just smoothies.
