Iman's daughter Zulekha Haywood, 31, tells Glamour she's pretty much been on a diet since she was 8. After gastric bypass surgery, she went from around 320 pounds to 168 pounds. "An overweight kid and already dining for sport, my first was the 'basta' diet. At home, my mother, Iman, a beauty icon and devotee of clean eating, would whisper 'basta' ('enough' in Italian) when I was in danger of overeating. The choice was always mine, and I usually put down the fork. But I also got hip to late-night snacking, raiding the refrigerator and cupboards after midnight." [Daily Mail UK]
