Question Puppy food with egg added? Slow growth question

Our 15 week girl is just over 29 lbs and isn't a real monster as far as growth. The breeder stressed the importance of not feeding a rich food and growing slowly for health reasons. She was started on Pro Plan for Large dogs as a pup. We're feeding 1.5 cups of food twice a day. I'd like to move to one cup of food three times a day, and mix with a raw egg at each feeding. I will eventually work into a partially raw diet but for now I would like to boost her intake with the egg. Would this be too much fat/calories? I think she's at the point where she needs a little more because she seems hungry all the time. Opinions?
I am leaning towards staying on the Pro Plan and working raw meats/eggs in vs. switching to a more expensive food. The goal is to eventually be on a mostly raw diet, maybe in the next three months.
