I SO agree that we're given a range for a reason. Some days I'm not as hungry and I can stay near the bottom of my range, no problem. Other days I'm hungrier, and I eat near the top. I see no point in traipsing around with a growling belly and feeling lightheaded.
The more important thing I reckon would be the types of food you're choosing to eat. A serving of potato chips or a couple cookies will give you some calories, but will not help with the hunger as much as say some peanut butter on a few whole-grain crackers or string cheese (or some nuts) and an apple. I try to always hit at least the bottom of my range with solid, nutritious choices, no junk or treats. I want to give my body the nutrients it needs, to cope with daily functions and the exercise I do.
