As you can see from Jamie Eason’s eating schedule in my recent post, “The Fitness Model Lifestyle”, she’s big on egg whites for her source of breakfast protein. Why is that?
Well, egg whites are really an amazing protein food, being almost pure protein dissolved in water. Here are some nutritional facts about egg whites:
Calories per 100g: 48 cal
Percentage Protein by Weight: 10.9%
Percentage of Calories From Protein: 91%
Percentage of Calorie From Carbs: 5%
Percentage of Calorie From Fats: 4%
And remember, the protein in egg white is complete protein, so it has all the essential amino acids your body needs – it’s just as good as any other animal-source protein!
