How much food for a 15 week/4month puppy?

About a month ago we switched from Blue Buffalo Wilderness Puppy to Acana lamb + apples (Not puppy specific) because we were told this is a good food for GSDs and would still support the calories she needs. She's a little over 30lbs at 15 weeks, and she looks pretty skinny despite eating 1 cup 3x day. She destroys the food every time we put it down, and will eat basically anything. We just want to make sure she is getting enough. It's super hard to find a daily caloric intake for puppies calculator on the internet, and you get advice from pet stores...who knows if they are any kind of expert. Anyone have advice/thoughts?! Thank you!

i've never fed puppy food. from 9 weeks to 9 months old i
fed 1 cup in the am, 1 cup noonish and 1 cup in the pm.
i gave my dog a small snack during the day. he also had
training treats.

weight is different for each dog. i think 30 lbs for a 15 week
old dog is fine. post a pic of your pup.

Well she doesn't look skinny in these because she thinks she will get treats if she sits and won't stand long enough for a photo haha. But this is her. She looks skinny from above when standing and the sides. You can see her ribs and she cuts in at her hips quite a bit. This could just be the puppy body she has. However, if you did the same, I'm sure it's fine! We were looking for a second opinion. Especially since she acts so hungry.
