Question:

From Port Perry, Ontario, Canada:

I was wondering how many fat grams are in one fat exchange for a diabetic diet plan.

Answer:

There are five grams of fat in each fat exchange listed in the exchange book. That means that there are 45 calories per fat exchange (nine calories/gram of fat).
