Can you tell me how much weight will i lose switching to a vegetarian diet and consuming 300-600 cals?

Depends : I'm not sure if you mean you will only be taking 300-600 cal of vegetarian food for the day which is too low of a caloric intake and not recommended on any diet.

Plenty of single participant cases of very unhealthy diets like the McDonald's Diet, the Twinkie Diet, for short periods(on the order of a month) have yielded significant weight loss and improved CV indices but a long term nutritionally unsound.
