Dear Gemini
Yes, I think you will lose weight because you are on a very-low-energy diet and are doing exercise. The general recommendation is that adult women should reduce their energy intake down to 1500 kcal/day - your regimen only includes 800 kcal/day, so if you find that you are feeling weak and wobbly, make sure that you increase your energy intake moderately. Too few kcal are also not good!
Best regards
