Rapper Missy Elliott has been active in the music industry since her first album was released in 1997. Since her rise to fame, Missy Elliott has been classified as overweight, but her weight has not affected her trademark confidence and style. In 2008, Elliott was diagnosed with Grave's Disease, an autoimmune thyroid disease. Thyroid disorders can affect the body's metabolism and can lead to changes in body weight. Grave's Disease may have contributed to Missy Elliott's weight gain and/or weight loss.
Despite her diagnosis, in 2014 Missy Elliott underwent a true celebrity weight loss transformation. Some reports suggest that the rapper has lost up to 70 pounds, but via Twitter Elliott publically stated that she actually only lost 30. So what is Missy Elliott's weight loss secret? Did she have bariatric weight loss surgery?

While Missy Elliott's weight loss is indeed dramatic, Elliott insists that she achieved her weight loss transformation by changing her diet and exercise - not through weight loss surgery. Missy limits limits fried food and tries to stick to a no bread, no sugar low-carb diet. Missy also specifically credits the T25 workouts in her weight loss journey.
Following Shaun T's T-25 workout videos helped Missy Elliott achieve her weight loss goals. The Focus T25 or BeachBody T25 workout is a 25-minute, high-intensity, full-body exercise routine. It is designed to pack a lot of punch in a short time. According to Shaun T, a celebrity trainer and former Mariah Carrey back-up dancer, by doing the T25 you can reap the same benefits as you would from a full 1-hour gym workout. The program lasts for 10 weeks, increasing the intensity of the workout as it continues. Props to Missy Elliott for sticking with and completing this difficult workout plan!
Just like many on a weight loss journey, Missy Elliott was inspired to lose weight not just to look good, but also for health reasons. As she stated in a 2011 interview, “I feel great. Under my doctor's supervision, I've been off medication for about a year and I'm completely managing the condition through diet and exercise." Good luck to Missy Elliott in keeping the weight off and staying healthy in 2018!
