How much does one gram of fat provide?

One gram of fat provides 9 calories. So, a teaspoon of olive oil -- which contains only fat, no protein or carbs -- has 5 grams of fat and provides 45 calories. The amount of energy supplied by fat is more than twice the amount of energy provided by carbohydrates and protein, which each contain 4 calories per gram.

In this regard, how many calories is one gram of body fat?

Each gram of fat contains 9 calories. Compare this to protein or carbohydrates, which each contain 4 calories per gram, and you can see why a diet high in fat can lead to weight gain.
