You will lose weight quickly this way.
It isn't good for you but it will work.
I advise taking a multivitamin with your meal to make sure you still get some nutrition.

I would more strongly advise you eat more than you actually are.
If you want to lose weight healthily then try eating regularly - they say that eating every 3-4 hours is the optimum for your metabolism.
So, try having a bigger breakfast, then a piece of fruit, then have a decent size lunch, then have another fruit snack, then have dinner and another fruit snack. Of course drink plenty of water as well.

A higher metabolism means you use up more energy. The knock on effect of this is that you lose weight.

As Sapphire said, you have to increase the amount of your eating.
Weight loss and dieting are two words which people don't like to hear, overweight or not. Images of intense work out regimes and trying to stick to strict, bland diets are some of the things that come to mind when those words are spoken.
But it's not hard to loose weight and it shouldn't be. It should be fun and easy to loose weight. Here's 7 simple steps to make loosing weight fun and easy.

1) Exercise in the morning before you eat breakfast Research has shown you'll burn three times more body fat working out during the morning than out at any other time of day.

I'm not talking about doing 100 push up with one hand behind your back, take it slow and easy. Do a few toe touches or arm curls with 5 pound weights each morning. The key here is easy and fun.

Though, you need to perform both resistance and cardio workouts so get your cardio in by taking a walk or jog to the park or around your neighborhood with your favorite tunes playing on your walkman or ipod. Believe it or not your body will continue to burn fat even after you're done excising so be sure to eat a full breakfast to get your energy levels back up.

2) Stay hydrated by drinking water.
Drink lots of water all day long from the time you wake up to when you go to bed. Drink 8-16 glasses filtered or bottled water a day. That may sound like a lot but after your morning workout you will probably drink one or two glasses of water.
Not only is water good for you, but it also flushes out harmful toxins in the body, increases your metabolism which will help you burn fat and keeps your skin completion clear.

3) Do light resistance training before cardio workouts
During the first 20 minutes of any exercise, your body will burn not any body fat. To counter this fact during the first 20 minutes of a workout do some stretching or warm-ups. Stretching and warm ups are important for exercises because it will help your muscles loosen up and prevent you from having any cramps and kinks the next day. It will also help increase your metabolism which will help you burn the fat.

4) Eat Breakfast
Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day but it will also boost your metabolism and give you the energy you need to burn fat. Eating a healthy and hearty breakfast will help put a stop to the cravings during the day so you won't find yourself snacking in between meals.

5) Change your mindset
People who are battling with weight (and even those who aren't) often compare themselves with others. Don't fall into this trap because you will never feel you stack up to the competition enough. Low self-esteem will lead you down the road to emotional trouble and will prevent you from reaching your goal. People are genetically different and therefore will lose weight in different amounts of time. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Be your own person and stick to your own target weight. Weight loss is not a race or a competition, the only person you're competing against is yourself.

6) Change your lifestyle
If you normally drive to work take the train and walk to the station. Take up some dancing classes or sign up some classes in a sport of your interest. This will not only get you exercising but doing these activities will also help you meet new people. Remember, loose weight easily while having fun.

7) Take before and after photos
While this may be hard for some people as they shy away from cameras at gatherings and it may not be easy to see yourself overweight. However, there is no easier way to see the progress your making than by taking before and after weight loss images. After you reach your target weight you won't be able to keep yourself away from cameras. You'll want to show everyone what you achieved.

In addition to helping your self development before and after weight loss images serve as a good reminder of how much you have achieved and can achieve if you set your mind to your goals.

By following these 7 simple steps to loosing weight you'll be on your way to your desired weight.

Regards
Katrina

If you are exercising a lot, then you should eat more carbs. Eating only one meal a day will not help you lose weight. Eat right and exercise is your best bet,
