Low carb cookbooks are your enemy. Apple Pie made with Splenda and coconut flour or almond flour or tapioca flour is almost guaranteed to have more calories than the real thing made with flour and sugar. Barbecued ribs made with Splenda instead of sugar may have 10% fewer calories, but you still have that 3000 calorie slab of ribs on your plate. Low carb quiches usually come in 600-700 calories per slice. Low carb ice cream almost always has more calories than the real thing.
