It depends on the calories per cup and your dog's metabolism and how active they are. I feed my big boy a cup of kibble in the morning and two at night, along with an egg, some apple, a bully stick, some all natural peanutbutter (a tbl at most) and training treats (varies stuff) throughout the day. If we don't do much exercise in a day I may knock it down half a cup. With winter, they burn more calories trying to stay warm if they spend a lot of time outdoors, so I give a few more high value treats.
My gal-dog, who is much small, get 1/2 cup in the morning and 1 1/2 cups in the afternoon. She may or may not get 1/2 a bully stick (6") but does get a carrot. Other than that I feed her the same as my boy. They are both trim and slim.
So you even with something as consistent as kibble, you have to make your best guess and see how your dog does.
By the way, we used Beaverdam Active dog / puppy. And almost forgot, various flavors of 4 Health canned food as toppers at night, but just a 1/4 of the can.
