Hi and welcome! :) How much to feed depends on how old she is. Mealworms aren’t a good staple feeder to use. I’m attaching both the feeder and ‘gutload’ graphics for you to reference. Crickets are a common and readily available staple feeder, but adding some variety is always best. Roaches and silkworms are my favorite feeders and are very nutritious. You will probably need to buy those on line, so do check the forum sponsors.
While we say ‘gutload’, what is really meant is to keep your feeders fed a varied and nutritious diet so that they are healthy, and therefore a better source of nutrition for your chameleon.
Having a female means your husbandry really needs to be as perfect as possible to prevent any egg laying issues. I do strongly suggest you answer the questions that are above (cut & paste) and one of us can look thru and help you as needed.
