A couple of years ago we came into the possession (not the other way around) of a 9 yo Labrador x poodle. He had been with a lady who had dementia and would forget that she'd fed him. When she went into a nursing home, he was grossly overweight. They put him on a serious diet, which we continued until he was 12 kg lighter at 32kg, which the vet reckons is about right. Funny thing is, now, although he is fed early in the morning, he grazes, and doesn't usually finish his meal until lunchtime or later. A treat, though, is always eaten straight away.
