If you are truly full it is okay to stop eating and save the rest for later even if your calories are low. By the same token if you are truly hungry it is okay to eat a little more. Just make sure it is healthy.
Our bodies don't know calorie ranges. The ranges are an overall guideline.

Tried but true--stop eating when you are full and only eat when you are hungry. Listen to your body to indicate when you are full and hungry. It is OK to stop in the middle of the meal if you are full--you don't have to belong to the clean plate club!
Try to stop throughout your meal to check with your body to make sure you haven't already reached fullness. Some times I'm distracted by other things. It's important to stop through out your meal and check if you've already reached fullness. Stop at 80% to see if you're already full, if so then stop
