Before cutting the amount, take a look at the amount of calories you're feeding. I didn't want to dip below 2 cups per day for my girl so I went first to a prescription diet and have then transferred over to Annamaet Lean. You also need to take in account the frame/height of your golden which may call for more weight. Now if he has the tiny head big body syndrome which I'm guessing by your post above--you may need to adjust the diet & yes, green beans as mentioned above are filling.
You may also want to consider having a full thyroid panel run (not an in-house lab) through either Michigan State or Dr Dodds at Hemopet--hypothyroidism is quite prevalent in goldens.
