She is a female, 4 years old and 145lbs. She looks very healthy but we were wanting some advice from other owners on how much food per day they'd recommend.

Did you read Thursday's Pet News story, "Giant George"? George weighs 250# and reportedly eats about 110# of food per month.--or almost four pounds per day. Your dog is 145# so should eat less than that!

Depends what you feed, if its a grocery store brand, its made mostly with cheap fillers which means your dog will have to eat a ton to get the proper nutrition and end up pooping out most of it.
Look for a high protein, low carb, meat based food which may cost little more initially, but you'll be feeding less due to higher nutrient content.
Look into taste of the wild, wellness core, acana provincial, orijen, horizon legacy just to name a few.
