Your opinions on weight loss plan for GSD (when on RAW)

Molly is almost 4 yrs, about 90lbs. Would like her weight to be about 84-85lbs.
Currently gets 8oz of prepared or dehydrated raw 2x small snack after late morning walk or training treats when she comes to my office. (not a lot, maybe (4) 1"inch square soft treats.

Looking for advice on moderate weight loss plan. Anything too drastic might make her colitis flare up. I was thinking of reducing her meals to 6oz instead of 8oz. That would be 4 oz less per day. Do you think she would then lose 1lb every 4 days? Does this sound reasonable? With her ortho problems, I'd like to get her leaner.
