Be strong, feed less, and don’t give in the the academy award worthy starvation act! Green bean diet is good. None of my dogs have ever been overweight so I have no first hand experience with weight loss, but I heard my vet recommending it a lot. I kept my dogs lean and fit by being careful to measure out food, limiting treat intake to almost zero (sometimes just using their kibble as treats since they love it and it is less caloric than treats), and lots of exercise. On days when they got less exercise, they got less food. Or on days when they got more treats (like for training or whatever), less food. Then going the other way, on days they got more exercise, they got a little extra food (like going on an off leash 15 mile trail ride with us and our horses-where the horses go 15 miles, but the dog does enough circling and running back and forth to double that, lol!) Start slowly with exercise though and build up endurance. Your dog will love being at a lean weight once she gets there even if she acts like she is starved-that’s just the nature of goldens. Plus, she will be far less susceptible to lots of health issues! Good luck with the weight loss!
