Last August we adopted a 10 y/o from a shelter.
She's wonderfully sweet -- affectionate and placid.

But, she has an appetite!
She weighed 9 pounds at our vet in August, when we took her for an exam; now, she's up to 20, and we're concerned about diabetes developing.[We previously had a 22 pounder diabetic who made it to 18]

We feed her 2 3oz cans/day of IAMS Purrfect, plus about 2 tbs [total] of dry food [Hill's adult], for which about 1 can/8 lbs is IAMS's recommended amount. So, we're not exceeding IAM's recommendation.

My question is this:

Are there other foods we can give her that has even fewer calories or carbs, and which can help trim her weight?
