Smile Appropriate fat grams during 1200 calorie diet?

How much "good fat" should I be striving for on my 1200 calorie diet? I am 5'3, healthy, although overweight at 160 pounds. I am incorporating exercise and am trying to drink more water. Anyhow, how many grams of fat per day should I stay under?

A healthy proportion of fat would be about 30%. As a gram of fat is 9 calories, 30% of calories on a 1200 diet would be about 45g fat a day.

I stick to around 45g of fat a day but eat slightly more calories (around 1400).
