Calories in Heavy Cream - Nutrition Information, Carbs & Fat Grams

Things Could Get Heavy.....
If you're working to eradicate that unwanted fat - then you'll want to steer clear of cream - the full-blown, real deal. It contains over 50 kcals per Tablespoon and over 800 per cup - in its whipped state.
However - there are reduced fat versions that contain less kcals than regular whipped topping. The variety that lives in the tall spray can and is marked 'light' contains a skinny 15 kcals per serving.
Light, Fluffy & Far Too Tasty
This white stuff is so good! And what happens when we meet a food that tastes this good? We want to keep eating; it's almost impossible to stop at that single serving.
Other creamy things in life produce the same desires in those of us who lean towards fluffy. Pudding for example.
And if you're a coffee lover - if you enjoy your brew dressed in black, then good for you! But some of us have a sweet tooth as deep as the Grand Canyon. Plain old java just won't suffice. Oh no - we have to add ladles of flavored coffee creamers to the cup along with other forms of sweetener like granulated sugar.
At this point, that innocent Plain Jane cup or mug has escalated to well over 100 kcals - at times, rising to 200 or 300, depending upon how much sugar plum fairies are added as well as how big the mug or cup happens to be.
While we're on a weight loss plan we tend to be very persnickety about the types of food that we put into our eating plan. Once the diet has ended, we often go A-I-P.
Keeping this scene in mind - if we want to retain our skinnier shape after the diet ends, we must master the art of managing that recommended number for our weight on our bathroom scales.
Therefore - dieting or not, you can enjoy cream, even heavy cream - as long as you do such in moderation.
