Missy Elliott has shared several snaps of herself looking fit and healthy with glowing skin, and revealed that the secret behind her weight loss included cutting out bread and drinking only water. In one photo, the rapper is almost unrecognisable while dressed in a brightly coloured ensemble and posing for the camera. She captioned the snap: "Proud to say it's been four 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 that's my weakness. But if I can give up those other things I'll fight that to! Maybe two cupcakes a month."
