Super Model Iman Eats Egg Whites

Some super models may be genetically blessed with the ability to eat anything and still look fabulous while others may have to work a little (or a lot) at maintaining that willowy, thin, yet toned body that is demanded of them in this fast moving world fashion world. Super model Iman, who for the record is looking fabulous at 53, shared with a reporter her own diet which we are proud to say included "egg white omelets with feta cheese and spinach and whole wheat toast for breakfast, protein shakes as a snack and chicken or salmon for lunch" and for "Dinner I will have whatever I want".

Iman is on the right track for maintaining, or losing, weight. Some quick facts about egg whites:
  • Eating eggs for breakfast is an effective weight loss strategy. Because egg whites are such an excellent source of high-quality protein without the calories, consuming egg whites in the morning will give your body the fuel it needs to burn fat and calories while building muscle. Studies like those conducted at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center found that participants eating two eggs (or equivalent in egg whites) for breakfast lost 65% more weight and felt more energetic than those who had a bagel containing the same amount of calories.
  • Egg whites provide the only protein that is instantly absorbed by the body. Other high protein foods like meats and protein bars and drinks must be broken down by your body before the proteins can be absorbed. This prolonged process results in your body receiving about 1/3 of the protein when the breakdown process is completed. Eliminating this breakdown process makes egg whites a better source of 100% natural protein.
