Default Need Guidance on Raw Diet

I'm about to start raw feeding my pup.
Code:
http://www.raw4dogs.com/calculate.htm
As per this calculator, im suppose to feed only about 70gm a day. My question is, as compared to kibbies (which is around 130gm a day), will my pup crave for food between meals or this 70gm (around) will be enough for her? And what about training treats? should we include the quantity of treats with this 70gm of raw food (treats+raw food = 70g)... please help.

... and out here we get only chicken and goat (mutton) please help.. ohh fishes too... xD

So long as you feed about 2-3% of your pups expected adult weight (if this is a puppy) then it will be enough. If this is an adult, feed 2-3% of her current ideal weight. Go by her body condition, not by her begging pleading eyes. I realize this can be hard. If she starts to lose weight, up the percentage. If she gains, lower the percentage. Onyx ALWAYS act like she's starving but if I feed more she will become overweight.

As for treats, yes you want to factor in the calories of her treats. She should get a little less food if she gets quite a bit of treats.

Random side note, funny how goat is called mutton where you are. Over here, mutton is sheep Goat is a very good red meat. I would try to use primarily red meat and chicken for edible bone. Even if you can't get a wide variety of meats, that is still miles ahead of any kibble.
