Sudden very low libido at 27?

Okay so its not SO sudden, it has been going on for around a year, but it suddenly kind of just happened. Im a 27 year old guy, but I used to be quite overweight so I went on a life changing journey over the course of a couple of years and dropped a good 50kg progressively. In the initial phases of weight loss things were alright, and Im someone who had PLENTY of libido, almost to the point where it nearly killed off some of former relationships.

But for the past year things have been errr flaccid (sorry)? Seriously, Ive lost all interest in sex and to a large extent women. I just dont seem to care about that stuff anymore. I used to masturbate like 5 times a week or more, now I go for months and it totally doesnt even cross my mind, I sometimes just masturbate to check that the damn thing is working. Casual sex used to be a thing of mine, loved hook ups, now i dont even see the point, as if its a chore. Ive always had issues with delayed ejaculation (used to last a good hour sometimes, much to delight of the female). But back then I was interested, now I last long and its not even much fun...

I dont know, Ive been told it has to do with my nutrition. But Im a super active healthy dude. I eat lots of protein, lean meats, low carbs, decent amount of fat and I workout at the gym and run 3-5 times a week. Im super happy in my life and work and Im surrounded by awesome people. What the hell is wrong with me. At first I was like yay now I can focus on other stuff in my life other than my penis, but now Im just worried. Whats it all about...

I recommend that you see your Dr to have your hormone levels checked. You're very young but you can still have something going on with your hormones.
Congratulations on the weight loss, changing your whole way of eating and getting lots of exercise.
I wish I could have been more help to you but since you sound so healthy a;; I can think of is that's a hormone issue. Not to worry if it is because there are many ways to treat it. Do get in to see your Dr though.

Low T bro. Get it checked by your doctor to rule out a potential tumor affecting your pituitary gland. You're on the younger side of Low T but it's not unheard of.  Low T affects more than just your sex drive. You need it for mental health, maintaining muscle mass, and keeping that fat you worked so hard to get rid of from coming back.  That's why most older men have pot bellies and love handles  - manopause.  Good luck!
