Four ounces of cooked pork tenderloin provides around 165 calories -- give or take a few calories. Pork tenderloin is incredibly low in fat, containing between 4 and 4.5 grams of fat per 4-ounce serving. Because fats give you 9 calories in a gram, just 36 to 41 of the total calories come from fat. Pork tenderloin doesn’t provide carbohydrates, so the remaining calories come from protein.
