Default How Much Food?

I guess I'm failing as a dog owner right now, because I'm second guessing (sort of) how much food Blaze is getting.

He gets 1 cup twice a day. Morning and evening. He's been this way since adulthood. Usually, I don't see any problems with this. But once in a while, if he's down with my parents, and he goes to the food container, they insist he's hungry and feed him ANOTHER WHOLE CUP.

Am I completely insane for despising this practice? If he paws his bowl after he's eaten or goes to the food container, I'd feed him maybe another half cup, at most. I mean, that's logical, right? He doesn't need a whole other cup?

To me, 1 cup twice a day seems like a good amount for a young, athletic, male dog on quality food. I don't want to feed him too much.

(rant part of this: they complain we go through food way too fast. then they insist he needs a ton more food. grrr. i wonder why)
