It’s never easy staying on the straight and narrow when it comes to eating healthy. Drinking water can be a bummer, and greasy, salty and sweet foods are always an attractive option. But the benefits of eating clean outweigh all of that. And being more cognizant of the foods you consume is important when you have to deal with certain health issues. For Missy Elliott, she has Graves’ disease, and while eating or not eating certain kinds of food alone won’t allow you to avoid symptoms of the illness, it can help you take care of a body that’s already going through a lot.

So the 46-year-old rapper has been trying to slowly but surely make some changes when it comes to what she ingests. She has been drinking nothing but water over the last few months when it comes to liquids, and has also been staying away from bread. According to Missy, the results have been great, and we can co-sign that. The glow is real.

“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!” she said. “See I’ve NEVER been a water drinker but this have helped my skin. It really restore glow back & I don’t feel sluggish.”

Next on her agenda? Moving away from junk food, which is always the hardest step to take.

“NOW the other thing if I can only cut out JUNK FOOD, sh-t that’s my weakness,” she said. “But if I can give up those other things I’ll fight that to! Maybe two cupcakes a month.”

This isn’t the first time Elliott has been able to change her diet. Around the time that she put out the Under Construction album in 2002, she lost 70 pounds by changing her habits. She transformed again in 2014, losing 30 pounds by eating healthy and working out to Shaun T’s T25 workout videos. But small changes, as Elliott proves this time around, can go a long way.

Looking good!
