Babies only eat as much as they want. They don't know how to over eat and they will eat until they are full. If your doctor is concerned or she's losing weight then I would worry but if she's sleeping normally, having enough wet diapers, and when she eats is eating normally then I wouldn't worry about it.

She may just be going through a spate of slow growth, it's normal for babies eating habbits to vary - if they are going through a groth spurt they will be hungrier than at other times. If you are breast feeding it may be that your milk is very rich at the moment and she doesn't need as much - as long as she is happy and healthy, doesn't seem over tired or dehydrated then don't worry too much, I'm sure it will sort itself out soon!
