300 calories a day: That is in the anorexic range and you would get very ill, with electrolyte imbalance ,y nutritional deficiencies and cardiac effects , osteoprosis. possibly edema ( swelling ) from protein calories malnutrition, body would use muscle for calories. Discuss you issue with a nutritionist or doctor http://www.eatright.org/find-an-expert
