If you ate 1/2 cup of corn flakes versus a 1/2 cup of Grape Nuts nuggets, the amount of cereal would be vastly different by density and weight. It would seem that understanding the weight of food versus the amount of water in it should be factored in. That is why the product recommendations by the manufacturer are specific to their product.The amount of energy your pup burns is also a factor. Consider if you have a big sleeper, or a Nascar type.
I feed Tux one nugget of Primal four times a day (2 cubic inches each) along with about 1-2 Tbsp. of goat milk 3 times a day. The nutrient content in Primal is rich and has no "fillers", so the "volume" of food is small but so are the poopies!
His weight and height stabilized at a little over a year and he has a decent amount of meat on his ribs, but you can tell where the ribs are if you kind of push and feel for them. Lots of variables with diet to consider.
