If she's a good weight bulk her food out with lower calorie stuff - Grau Rice and Veg flakes are good. Makes them think they're getting more without the extra calories. Or give her some raw bones to chew at

i think some are just pigs. Our cocker got in the green food bin once and he was literally like a football and still going. Was a tad ill for some time

If it's not a compete pain in the ass try splitting her feeds into 2 a day to see if it helps.

Could try a meaty broth in a pan, meat veg glug of oil or fatty of cut, that way it will get a belly full of meat and veg but also have to drink a good bit of broth so also having the full feel?
What you feed as a main staple at the min? Does she get bully off food? Cause of be triggered by a free for for a few weeks and she got pushed out and felt the need to wolf food just to get her share?

Normal mate ,all mine do it ,its in their nature .
Yeah they all eat once a day at nite & as soon as let out of kennel in morning she's looking for more food & if any of the others left any she's straight into there bowls??
Would be worried if they didn't eat whenever the chance arose .
The difference is you don't allow it and regulate according to activity ,age and weather.

some dogs are just greedy, others fussy. neither of these is a concern, but what worries me a bit with your dog is that this behaviour has changed suddenly especially at that age.
one thing could be if the period when she was left with your dad he changed her feeding regime, maybe fed with another dog which tried to steal her food or something
but could also be caused by illness, for example some hormonal issues can affect appetite or possibly certain cancers or diabetes (is she drinking more than usual?). i am not trying to worry you and i'm sure she is fine, but worth getting some blood tests done by vet
