Nutritional deficiency or hunger?

Recently my year-old puppy has been eating (not just chewing, but frantically eating or looking to eat everything she can get her mouth around, even when in front of a person). During the winter months when she could not be excercised as much we cut down on the amount of food (dry dog food with the occasional dog-friendly leftover) that we gave her. With the advent of the warmer weather, however, we are once again able to walk her 5-8 miles a day but haven't increased the amount of food we give her because she has remained, so far as can be seen, trim and healthy. Can such constant eating result from pur ehunger or could it be a nutritional deficiency?

What breed is she?.And how much do you feed her?

Also,have you talked to your vet about this?Has she had a complete check up?

Sorry for all the questions.
