What constitutes as a skinny frog?

This has been bothering me for a while, because my frogs seem happy and healthy, and they eat like little piggies when they get the chance, but they don't have really round bellies. They look kind of skinny to me.... I'll try and post pictures, but it would really help if there was something I could look for. They will be a year old in November and are blue and bronze auratus.

Have you had them checked for parasites? I had a frog like that -- seemed healthy and happy but kind of skinny, so I sent fecals to Dr. Frye; turned out she had hookworms and tapeworms. I treated them (just dusted her flies with fendawhatever) and soon the frog was nice and pudgy. I had to cut back on how much I fed her.
