Low carb ice cream usually has more calories than regular ice cream and usually twice as many calories as low fat ice cream. Fat is 9 calories per gram, while protein and carbohydrate are 4 calories per gram – and low carb foods substitute fat calories for carbohydrate calories, so low carb foods are generally higher in calories than the originals. Low carb pudding is made with heavy whipping cream, which has more than twice the calories of milk, and can have four times the calories of low fat pudding. Low carb baked goods are made with almond flour or coconut flour, which means they are made with ground almonds or ground coconut, which has more than twice the calories of wheat flour, because of the fat in almonds and coconut.
