and the ladle for the omlettes is 6 0z it is

640 oz for 5 gallons of eggs divided by 6 oz is 130 omlettess aprox and so about 1 carb per onlettes
LIke I said earlier, unless you are wheat intolerant, I did a beef fajita omlette diet for 2 months and lost 30 lbs

I'm not discounting the problem for someone who is allergic to wheat products, etc. My SIL, who must be allergic to everything including air and water, is very careful with everything she eats. I would assume that anyone who has a serious problem with that type thing, would do a lot of investigation before eating anything.

I'm just asking if that amount of carbs, spread out in that volume of eggs, is even significant in relation to a low carb WOE. If the numbers are correct, I think it would work out to about 1g/half a dozen eggs.

i think you are right if the calculations are correct. I never knew the amount of pancake batter in the omelettes i just noticed on menu that they added them in...once i noticed i asked for fresh eggs. I will likely continue to ask for fresh eggs. I am on maintenance though and order the nut and grain pancakes with my omelette, so its not like i'm not packing on the carbs already lol.

I just went to their online menu and was floored by the amount of carbs stated for their meals. But they do insist on their website to ask for sauce on the side or whatever you want to be omitted just ask. I am going there tomorrow and and so grateful you told me about the flour in the eggs.

"Patrick Lenow, Director of Communications for IHOP, confirmed for LowCarb Living Magazine that IHOP's popular omelets do indeed contain what he characterized as "a splash" of pancake batter, enough to add roughly six grams of carbohydrates to the omelet. While this might not seem like a big deal to those who don't need or want to watch their carbs, for someone following the first phases of a low-carb diet such as the Atkins Diet, where carbohydrate intake might be restricted to 30 grams per day or less, that six grams is meaningful."

When we go I get their pork chop breakfast with eggs over easy. You get two nice sized grilled pork chops with two eggs. It also comes with a side of hash towns that I give to my hubby. I like the pork chops best because if I get the bacon and sausage it's just too much sodium for me.

I love IHOP! I go there with my mom all the time, and lately I've been ordering one of their Combo plates. Instead of pancakes and hash browns, I get extra eggs and extra sausage. Their extra-crispy bacon is awesome. Oh, and try adding a side of sour cream as dip for your bacon & sausage. Sounds weird but it's a nice touch!!

When we went there 2 weeks ago I just asked if I could have an omelette
without the batter. The waitress said, "oh, you want a 'real' egg omelette, no problem!"

But even after those carb counts are stated, I'm wondering are they including the pancakes or toast that come as a side too? I see it says without hashbrowns? Counts seem way too high. I went there for lunch, and just told the waitress no sides, she seems fine with that.

Whenever I eat an omelet out, I ask for fresh eggs, just in case. That's whether I know they add pancake batter or not. Better to be safe than sorry, and it has never been a problem.

For some people it's not a big deal. For some, it is. For those of us who eat very low carb, like under 20g total per day, the little amounts add up, and if you're not careful with hidden carbs, it's easy to get derailed.

Not to mention, I often get a stomachache if I have been in ketosis for a long time and then eat even a small amount of simple carbs. I'm not gluten intolerant or anything like that, but if I have something like bread or sugar (or pancake mix), my stomach will hurt for a few hours.

Better to know and be able to decide for ourselves, no?

Food that you can see(not an premix of something) if you have not prepared it yourself,that is my motto.
Re the pancake batter I can see it adding up to 6 g of carbs. It sounds a lot in numbers, but to "normal" eaters it is not even the amount of one slice of Wonderbread . So the expression "splash" is probably very correct in terms of regular Joe and Joanne .
