Can you tell me how I could lose a lot of weight and how much weight will I lose it 2 weeks eating only 800 calories a day?

In brief: 3500 calories is 1lb

Pounds are lost by losing 3500 calories.
So in a day if you eat 800 calories and your body burns 1800 calories through exercise and basal metabolism, you lose 1000 calories a day. Takes 3.5 days to lose 1 pound. So it depends on the calories your body burns. Varies by metabolism and exercise. You would lose 4lbs in 2 weeks. This does not include water weight loss.
