Different approaches work for different people. For me, 10 g of fat a day, and not counting calories, wouldn't work at all. I make a whole wheat french bread with absolutely no fat or sugarin it...and about 1200 calories per loaf. I could NOT have a free pass to eat that bread, because I lose weight by keeping my calories at a reasonable level. Also, your body needs a certain amount of fat to function. Throughout my weightloss, I averaged probably 20-25% of my total calories from fat.

I would really recommend that you try a tool like FitDay to see what you are eating in terms of calories a day. It might be eye opening! Certainly if you aren't eating enough calories, that'd explain the hunger!
