Don't dwell too much on going over your fat calories. We do need fat to be healthy. The key is to make sure that you choose fat from healthy sources like olive oil or salmon/fish.
If you find that you're getting hungry, try to make sure you're eating foods that are high in FIBER. Fiber helps keep a person full for longer. Some foods that are high in fiber include fresh fruit and veggies and whole grain breads/cereals. You also want to make sure to eat a bit of protein. Example of a healthy snack would be apple slices with a small dab of peanut butter. Hummus with toasted pita wedges. piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter.
