I can't believe you count the calories in benefibre, this should only be used to top up your fibre intake not be it entirely.
Also you know that 800 calories is not enough, 1200 should be about the least amount you intake. What your doing is not healthy or nutritious, your get run down, your gums will suffer badly, face will probably become spotty and as for internal damage who knows.
Why don't you up you calorie intake a bit by adding some vegetables and fruit, you'll probably find by eating a bit more you'll actually lose more weight & fat because your body won't be in starvation mode like it is now.
Try 4-6 smaller meals a day to keep your systems going and stave off hunger. Protein is filling and keeps hunger at bay for longer so up this along with fruit & veg.
This is what I am currently doing but I am getting lots of protein, fruit & veg inside me

Well if you want to loose fat and not just muscle and water I would suggest eating at least 1000 cal throughout the day consisting of (5) 200 cal meals starting as soon as you get up so that you can bump your metabolism up as quickly as possible and then keep it at its highest level throughout the day. Also don't forget to drink lots of water and NO carbonated drinks.

This is not healthy. Microwave dinners lack a lot of nutrients and they are high in salt. If you want to lose weight and be healthy please do it the correct way.
1) buy some fresh veggies and steam them
2) take vitamins
3) Work out 3-5 times doing cardio and throw in some weight sessions every other session.
4) stay hydrated
5) Eat some grains for breakfast
my advice would be dump that microwave crap and learn to cook.
im not sure exactly how much you would lose but my older sister is on a 900 calorie diet and she lots 11 pounds in like a week are something close to that so you should be losing about 7 to 8 pounds a week just don't forget to work out some so that your body doesn't look flabby when all your weight is gone
