Dogs don't think like that. What you do is as follows:
Prepare a bowl of food at feeding time. Give it to the dog.
If the dog does not eat right away or only eats a little, take the food away. Do not give it anything to eat until the next regular feeding time.
When that time comes, give the dog the a full meal of the same food. If the dog does not chow down, take the food away again. Repeat as necessary.
Your dog will not starve this way. Rather, it will figure out PDQ that it had better eat what food it is given, when that food is given, or it will go hungry.
