Thanks for answering my questions.
Because she's a middle aged girl, the first thing I'd do is to have your vet run a little bit of blood work on her to rule out any medical reason for her increased hunger. Things like thyroid conditions can cause them to have an increase in appetite, so that's the first thing I'd do.
After that, I'd try feeding her a high fiber snack right before bedtime. You were on the right track with giving her a small piece of meat right before dinner, but something more substantial would be better because it will keep her fuller, longer.
I hope this helps.
