You'll still lose weight but with such low protein you'll also lose a lot of lean muscle. This in turn will lead to a lower metabolic rate (slow metabolism) than people who consume the recommended amount of protein. You'll have a high body fat percentage for your weight.
I would also be concerned about the types of fat you are consuming, are they mostly healthy fat sources? Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats? Or are they saturated and trans fats?
In all honesty I would be concerned of the health effects of such a diet. Protein is necessary for so many functions in the body including muscle repair, creating antibodies, supporting movement, fluid, PH and acid-base balance, transportation of nutrients, waste products and electrolytes and the absorbtion of sodium and potassium and providing energy.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
