Cat eating less on wet food

I recently transitioned my 6 year old cat to wet food. She took the transition really well and lost interest in her kibble faster than expected (she'd eat the wet food around the kibble) so the transition was faster than expected. However, she's eating considerably less than the suggested amount for her weight. The food I'm using suggests ~3 cans/day and she only eats ~1 can/day. I feed her 3 times a day - 8am, 2pm, 8pm; I leave her food out for ~2 hrs (with dry food I'd only leave it out 1 hr but trying to see if she'll eat more if she has a little more time) and but she leaves a lot in the bowl. I'm not sure if this is because of the fast transition and her body is still getting used to the food, the higher moisture content is filling her up more so I should do more meals or something else. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciate.
