More than double the amount of protein per calorie count and virtually no fat. Not that there's anything wrong with the fat in the yolk, most of it consists of healthy fats. But for those wanting to decrease their overall fat, calorie intake while increasing their protein intake.
I love the yolk but i only usually have 1 whole egg a day or a couple times a week in addition to doing egg whites. If I need to decrease the amount of fat in a recipe while increasing the protein, I use egg whites. But I'm not against using the whole egg if it fits into my dietary needs for the day.
4 egg whites are approximately 68 cals, 0.5 g fat and 14.5 g of protein.
1 whole egg is approximately 78 cals 5 g fat and 6 g of protein.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
