I have owned a few Brazilian Rainbow Boas, hence why I feel confident in answering your question. As far as a feeding guideline, I do not know of any besides what you are doing. But, judging by the pictures you posted, she is extremely healthy. Brazilian Rainbows are not supposed to be a thick snake, they are supposed to be more lean. A lot of breeders out there will power feed, and over feed, to get them big and beefy and ready for breeding at an early age. As long as your snake is alert, active, has no sunken belly, eyes are clear, and scales look healthy (no dimpling), then you are feeding correctly and the humidity requirements are being met. There are a lot of people who like to "pump-up" their snake to make them much bigger than they would normally be, so just because yours isn't as thick doesn't mean anything. Read your snake, and it is then that you can tell if they are healthy or not. Take care!
