i was wondering about feeding betta's

i had my fish for just about 4 days now i was wondering a little about feeding them.
i use hikaria betta bio-gold
package says feed 2 to 4 pelets 2 to 3 times a day.
i been feeding him 3 in the noon when i wake up and when i get home from work 3 at night.
i work 12 to 14 hour days usaly so i am trying to put the fish on my schedual..... my room has dark curtains for this reason so i can sleep lol but anyways.
do you guys think i am feeding him to much i see a few posted they only feed 2 pelets a day. he eats all 3 looks at more for more but i do not feed him more. they remind me of a pot belly pig it seems like. if anyone ever own one they do nto know when to stop eating and can get so big they can not even walk if the owner is not carful. i also see people are talking about fasting them one day ot of the week i may go to that as well i belive his length is about inch and a half to 2 inches.
was just wondering if i should change the amount of what i am feeding him at all more or less? also i think ill buy so freeze dried blood worms as a treat for him as well.

Once daily feedings of 3 pellets are fine :)

Bettas can be pigs so it's important to never overfeed them.
