Our expert says:
You don't mention you height in meters or present weight in kg so that I can calculate your current BMI and ascertain if you are not already underweight with a BMI of less than 20??? If you run 5 times a week and only eat a handful of raw nuts and a bit of supper per day, your 800 kcal/day diet is not only deficient in energy, but can also lead to a whole host of other deficiencies (e.g. calcium which can cause brittle bones, iron with can lead to anaemia, protein, zinc, omega-3, etc). For your own sake Please consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), so that she/he can evaluate your present body build, your desire to lose an additional 6 kg and your food and nutrient intake. The dietitian will assist you with a more balanced diet and advise how you can improve your nutrient intake so that you don't harm your health.
