Your doctor will be able to tell you how many exchanges you can have now that you are older.
1 exchange=15mg phes n3 ex= 45mg phe= 1 g of protein (roughly)
nI am allowed 15ex so I can have about 5 grams of protein. If anyone orders from Cambrookefoods they have a new “phenometer” that is free when you order food from there. It is a ruler that has all 3 measurements on there so it helps you keep track a lot easier (i use a paperclip to keep my mark)
