Bianca Aiono is looking for a sponsor, preferably one who farms eggs.
In her bid to become one of the world's best natural body builders the 27-year-old personal trainer from Glasshouse Mountains, eats 28 eggs a day, minus the yolks.
"I spend a lot of money on eggs," Bianca jokes. "I just need to find out which restaurant is making a lot of hollandaise sauce and get the leftover egg whites before they get thrown out."
Bianca competed at the International Natural Bodybuilding Titles on Sunday and won the Intermediate Figure Category.
The title has eluded her for the past two years as Bianca struggled to meet her strict diet and exercise regime.
"I didn't believe I could do it, which meant I just wasn't lean enough to stand up on stage in bikinis and stripper heels and have a group of strangers give me a point for every fault I had," Bianca said.
"This time I started preparing months earlier and did a lot of soul searching and figured out accepting yourself and loving yourself for who you are is the best fat burner of all."
She trains at least 20 hours a week, incorporating weights and cross training.
Bianca represented Australia in swimming and volleyball before discovering body building. She was unhappy with her weight, which was 84kg, and wanted to trim down. She now weighs 68kg.
"When I was 24 I was overweight and wanted to improve my body. I got into bodybuilding and loved it – then it became an obsession," Bianca said.
"Bianca heads to the Gold Coast on May 30 for the Asia Pacific Natural Bodybuilding Titles, where she is hoping for a win.
