Different dogs need different amounts of food. My dogs only eat about 2-3 cups a day. Maybe he just doesn't need as much as you are feeding him so he leaves the rest?
I would cut back to maybe just one cup a meal, 2x a day, and see if you can get him eating more consistently. He might skip a few meals to start with, but just put it down for 10 minutes and then take it up. Regardless of whether or not he's eaten. He might skip a few meals at first but once he'll start to eat more regularly you can increase the amount slowly until you feel like he's at a good amount to maintain a healthy weight.
That has always worked well with our dogs.
