Default Hamster weight and food

Hi so my hamster bean has always enjoyed his food. About 2 months ago he weighed 43g and he was quite fat and I noticed lately hes lost weight and I saw that hes been hiding most of his food without eating it. I weighed him today and hes 21g and I am worried as he is only around 5 months. He is drinking water and he will eat mealworms and food in his cage when I scatter feed but from his bowl he puts it all in his mouth and hides it. Can someone help?
He has also become a lot more active lately and is using his wheel a lot. I have started feeding him more nutritious stuff such as mealworms bad crickets as a treat and he has forage he can find. Can someone tell me if this is something I need to be worried about do I need to get some vitamin solution for him to help him gain weight or take him to the vet?

How much have you been feeding him and how often? What food(s) are you using?
