Default Low Cal decent/good food?

Long story short is Mia is a touch tubby and I need to feed her less BUT she pukes bile when I ration her food too small and all the foods I've used are really high calorie (near 500 k/cals). So I was thinking a lower calorie food might be better for her because there'd be more mass but less calories and she'd feel full and not puke.

Good idea? Any suggestions? She's fine with grains in or grain free and no intolerances or allergies I know of.

My moms dog (who was getting more than a little chunky) turned his nose up at low cal foods and would puke pile... so we did half his normal food and half something else (green beans, carrots, rice etc...) and he did lose weight! Maybe try that?

She spits out any vegetable. I've thought about the green beans but they're a no go.

Oh wow that one is all the way down to 250 kcals! Might have to consider it even if just for short term use. Looks like TOTW is in the 350-80 range.

Annamaet Lean looks like another option (350 kcals) but I'd have to order it online. That might be a hassle.

Pip gains weight REALLY easily and the one that works best for him is the Wellness Core Reduced Fat. It's wicked expensive, though... although you have wee dogs so maybe not as bad.

I really, really like Annamaet. Even their Manitok (422) formula is pretty low in calories compared to some other foods.
