How much to feed a puppy

Natty is 7.5 months old and being fed Annamaet Encore, an "all life stages" food. I'm happy with the food and he seems to do well on it. Because the food is designed for all life stages, the recommended feeding instructions are for adult dogs with lower amounts than are needed for a growing pup. I've been feeding him over 1800 calories a day which sounds like a lot but he is fit and trim - an active, so it seems right for him. I know that his growth rate will slow at some point and I will need to cut back on his calories. I prefer to do this gradually. Does anyone know at what age I should begin doing this?

I think I posted this in the wrong section. I am unable to delete it so I'm going to repost it in "Feeding Puppies" If the mods can delete this one I would appreciate it.
