I don't even know what "heavy whipping cream" is. Over here in Oz, we don't seem to have a product like that. We do have whipping cream but it has as many carbs as milk, low fat, yada yada. The only whitening/cooling agent I have in my coffee these days is something called "pouring cream" which has 0.9g carbs per 30ml and a heap of fat. I use about 60mls per cup of coffee, and I have 2 cups, no more. Otherwise its herbal tea of one kind or another. Even having 2 cups of coffee is pushing it for me, I love coffee but alas the fat content in the cream does not like me. (Inevitably I begin feeling nauseated after the second cup. you'd think I would learn. I'm a bit slow.)

It's the same thing for me when I put coconut oil in a drink. Does not settle well. I'm pretty sure it's not the fat that's doing it because I can eat a spoonful of bacon grease or shortening with no problem.

OK I'm jealous. I've had to give up bacon, and I LOVE it. Have not been game to try pork belly or pork chops lately, last time I had chops I ended up having to cut the fat off Seem to be OK with fatty chuck steak if its slow cooked.

@kyteflyer
Have you had your gallbladder removed by any chance?

I have, and I don't digest fats very well. BUT I have found a bile supplement, Ox Bile, which I take (125mg) after every fatty meal. Works very well and I have no issues eating fat now.

I looked it up, heavy whipping cream must contain at least 36% milk fat: and whipping cream must contain at least 30% milk fat. So, those are calorie bombs for sure, but might be worth it, on an occasional basis.
There might be another name for it in Australia, but I would venture to say that it is sold there.

My occasional use is daily in coffee. A cup of which is 500+ calories, but not all is from the HWC.

No, but I had issues when I was 21. Had a nasty bout of Infectious Mononucleosis and a Haemolytic Strep infection which affected my gallbladder and other organs. I was left with a gallbladder in the shape of an hourglass and I have to be very careful about the amount of fat I consume. Interestingly I had forgotten all this until I went LCHF initially and began, after a few weeks, getting twinges again.

Generally its the cream in coffee and a few other things. After that at 21 I went very low fat for a number of years. That is also when I really began struggling with my weight. Wasn't a massive issue until recent years when my capacity for exercise is significantly reduced (thanks to arthritis and heart failure). Aint life grand?
