In my experience, if you are feeding a lower grade food with the fillers, chances are her body shows the fillers. Once her body does not have a bunch of that crud in it, she'll poop smaller and her body will start to reflect the better food with a slightly leaner look, a shinier coat etc.. As for trimming down, you can do that with just feeding a little less each day. Not a ton, a 1/8 of a cup can make a difference. Also, maybe, you may find dividing the feeding into 2s can help too. We used to feed only in the evening but now do it twice a day. It seems like I can see if they are really hungry or maybe just wanting to eat and then adjust the food accordingly. This way you can add a little and see if it makes a difference to them. If they are not wanting food, it can make it easier to cut back too
