The Top Swap at IHOP

072790_IHopTHIS.jpg

IHOP was one of the last chains to release its nutritional numbers, and given the national-debt-level calorie counts on much of its menu, we see why. Factor in the new line of bacon burgers and the absolute worst breakfast menu in America and it's hard to find much to like about IHOP. The best thing we can say is that lunch and dinner aren't nearly as calamitous as breakfast.

There are two ways to leave IHOP with your belt still buckled: Choose one of the Simple & Fit items, or stick to the basics. This no-frills dish isn't winning any health-food awards, but it's a pretty conservative breakfast compared with IHOP's typical 1,000-calorie fare. Just remember to go easy on the syrup. The Quick Two-Egg sounds innocuous enough, yet it packs nearly a third more calories and fat of the Two × Two × Two.
