Mealworms are not a very good food source for any reptile. They are high in Chiten (their hard shell) which can cause impaction especially in smaller reptiles like yours. Also they are very low in nutrients and do not give the proper levels and nutrition that especially a young animal needs. Try feeding crickets small ones no bigger then the space between her eyes and as many as she can eat in a 10 minute sitting. If she is still searching for more after the 10 minutes give it too her. But usually after 10 minutes they get full. But there shouldnt be an amount limit. If she is still hungry she will eat. Good luck!

hi :) the reset kit. its a 5 day fiber cleanse with shakes and bars and vitamins. and if you want to keep losing weight after the 5 days just keep taking the shakes and nutrition bars. http://shop.usana.com/shop/cart/ProductDetails?ProductID=251.010000 my friend wanted to lose some weight so he tried this and he didn't follow all the instructions like exercising and drinking lots of water like he was supposed to in addition to the reset kit but still lost 10 pounds in a week. i also have another friend that lost 60 lbs in 3 months! so you should check it out. and its also a good way to lose some extra weight in a healthy way. if you have any questions you can email me. raelene.montes@yahoo.com

Mealworms are just a good treat. Leopard geckos should not just be fed on mealworms or waxworms as a staple diet. You should definately feed your gecko crickets. And Make sure you coat the crickets in a calcium supplement about once a week to assure your gecko gets proper bone growth.

I agree with the other post. You should be feeding dusted crickets, as the main food source. Any kind of worm is only to be used as a treat, once a week, at the most.
