Celebritist learned from Missy Elliot’s Instagram post that she is cutting out some food to achieve results. Soda and bread are some of the items she has not touched in months, but her weakness remains junk food.
“Proudly to say it’s been 4 months I have only drank water no other juices or soda & I cut out bread & Lord knows that’s been the hardest for me! See I’ve NEVER been a water drinker but this have helped my skin. it really restore glow back & I don’t feel sluggish. NOW the other thing if I can only cut out JUNK FOOD.”
The rapper revealed to People in 2011 that she had Graves’ disease, an autoimmune illness that attacks the thyroid. It affected her motor skills, causing side-effects such as mood swings, lumps in her throat, dizzy spells and bulging eyes, but radiation and medicine helped her regain her health. “You live with it for the rest of your life,” she told the publication.
Missy had to make changes in her lifestyle and diet especially, which she admitted has helped her fight the disease. ‘I feel great. Under my doctor s supervision, I’ve been off medication for about a year and I’m completely managing the condition thru diet and exercise.’
The disease may have slowed her down at the beginning, but the Queen if Hip-hop is back and doing much better.
