The Complete Missy Elliott Weight Loss Story

Missy Elliot is one of the few female rappers who has made over 30 million in album sales alone. Also known as Misdemeanor, Missy has a host of awards to her name as well, most recently winning the Video Vanguard Award at MTV Video Music Awards in 2019.

But today, we aren’t focusing on her professional career achievements. Instead, we are going to shed some light on one of her biggest personal achievements- the Missy Elliott weight loss. When the rapper flaunted a Versace dress in a 2018 Instagram post, the dress was the last thing that the fans noticed. Missy Elliott’s weight loss transformation stunned every one of her 4.6 million followers.

Accompanying the picture was a caption that summarized her entire diet plan. So, she not only shared her transformation but also shared how she did it all. In this article, we are going to talk about everything related to her weight loss story, including her diet plan. So, let’s get straight to it.

Missy Elliott’s Fight With Graves’ Disease

Fans have only seen the results recently, but the fact is that Missy Elliott has been working on her weight loss for quite some time now. It all started when Missy was diagnosed with Graves’ Disease in 2008. For those who don’t know, Graves’ Disease leads to excess thyroid hormone production, which can prove fatal.

Once the diagnosis came, Missy wasted no time in making all the necessary changes. Along with using medication for over a year, Missy started working out regularly and switched to a proper diet that would help her lose weight and get rid of Graves’ Disease.

As reported by Daily Mail, Missy had lost almost 70 pounds by 2014. That’s 6 years of diets, workouts, medications, and regular checkups. Although she was feeling much, much better after losing 70 pounds, the journey didn’t end there. As Missy found out that her disease was a recurring one, she decided to dump medication and stick to her new and healthy diet plan.

And as evident from her latest pictures, her struggle to achieve a healthy body and perfect physical health has paid dividends.

Missy Elliott’s Second Weight Loss

After losing 70 pounds by 2014, Missy wasn’t ready to settle just yet. Missy Elliott continued her special diet and renewed her gym membership to further work on her body and get as fit as she could. And in 2018, Missy shared again that she had lost another 30 pounds thanks to a lot of hard work and a strict diet plan. And this time, her fans were quick to notice and compliment her on her incredible transformation.

Comparing her recent pictures to the ones at the start of her career, it is visible that Missy put in a lot of work. After all, losing 100 pounds only by following a diet plan and proper workouts is no mean feat.


Missy Elliott Weight Loss Diet & Workouts

She hasn’t exactly shared a detailed diet plan that she is on, but she did let out one of her secrets about her second weight loss. Missy took to Instagram to share a picture to flaunt her new and sleeker figure. In the caption, she shared how she achieved that.

For 4 months straight, Missy drank nothing but water. No drinks, no alcohol, no juices- not even fresh ones. Plus, Missy also shunned bread completely, something that she said was very difficult.

What this does was made Missy feel re-energized. Staying hydrated regularly helps with keeping energy levels high as well as improves digestion. Plus, clearer and healthier skin is a huge bonus. Missy also shared that she didn’t use to drink that much water before, so this was new territory but she loved the results.

Although she has been very open about her journey, sharing details about her illness and raising awareness about the need for a healthy body through her social media, Missy has been fairly quiet about her workouts so far. It’s no secret that losing this much weight is impossible with diet alone. We are sure that regularly goes to the gym, however, we don’t know what workouts she performs. We’d love for her to share those as well someday.

Surprisingly, Missy Elliott shared that she hasn’t given up junk food just yet. That means she must be working really hard in the gym. To be able to look as fit as she does right now and still gets to eat whatever she wants is a blessing not everyone is blessed with. We wish her all the best and look forward to finding her workouts soon.
