I wouldn't say so. Frag weighs about 80lbs now at 8 months and he's eating 5 cups a day, and he's LEAN. Not sure on his height though.. Frag isn't neutered either, and I'd say if your guy looks healthy, or is losing weight, than you're not feeding too much. If you posted some pictures, we could probably help tell you if that was a good amount for him, or if maybe he needed more.
Some dogs just burn calories a lot easier, and other not so much. Of course, the amount of energy and exercise they get plays a large part; Frag runs for about an hour 3 times a week with a lot of training and play inside, then he goes to the dog park and runs non stop for a few good hours 3 times a week with training and then gets a day off to recouperate. I think if he'd actually eat it, we could feed him 6 or 7 cups and he wouldn't get fat or even fill out much. He just won't eat it.
