    People might just find your content to be boring.

    could be, but it looks strange to me because the niche is hot, you have 150k so you are under the lights, contents is good, not excellent but good and usually interestes people (they are fitness guides, tips and photos)

    They probably gained most followers by using a baiting technique..now these people are realising it and slowly dropping off. E.g you can easily gain 500 followers a day just by following top 40 most pop accounts on insta..wait 5min then unfollow and follow...you will gain 10-30 followers everytime you do this.

    But more than 50% will unfollow you over the next few days if you don't keep doing it. This person could have been doing this for months. And now it's catching up with them.

    Could have started off by buying a couple (maybe 10) thousand fake followers

    I'm with those suggesting this was the fake account elements largely. Sure real people do unfollow stuff they've been baited into, but bulk losses like this are not generally manually created results. This is because a large portion of the followers for that account were fake or bots. This is not conjecture on my part. They were fake. Obviously I don't know the exact account, or the accounts effected, but I do know recent algorithm changes adversely effected many IG marketers who used fake accounts and/or bots to push up follower counts.

    Many account holders likely do not know that when they purchased followers from an unscrupulous supplier that it was fake or botted followers. That's all. When this happens you will see highly engaged accounts who have a majority of real followers, and they can still lose a big chunk of fake followers when IG algorithms catch up to the new botting methods.

    actually it must have lost (a lot) more than 5k, that statistics only shows the net balance between the number followers and followings, this big acc must gain followers naturally with doing practically nothing (oher than posting content)

    why would you want to buy an account like this, when you can buy other ones which don't have this tendency? maybe it will stop soon, maybe it won't, you never know, something is definitely not right, in extreme cases the acc can get banned too, why would you risk it?

    Instagram seems to be cleaning up the streets lately. Don't sweat it. If your content has been on par as it has since your growth then dont look back and keep moving forward.
