try cycling it then- eat 1700 one day, 1400 one day, etc- as long as your average is within your range you'll be fine! i tend to eat at/even above the upper limit of my range on more intense workout days and less otherwise, but sometimes i just have a bigger day!
also, what you eat makes a huge diff! eg my snack of a few cups of sugar snap peas = under 100 cals and keeps me fuller much longer than, say a 100 cal snack pack (though i have those sometimes too!).
i personally find higher protein intake helps me keep full and within my range- for me that's a lot of chicken breast, some tofu, lots of beans, nonfat greek yogurt (plain/flavored), eggs, etc! maybe try increasing your protein and see if that helps?
