Calories or food intake has to be less than that which we sweat off. Healthy meals. Sometimes body composition is different and you have to exercise more, rigorously. Try detox too.

You need to do some googling. :) Calorie intake depends on your age, size, activity level etc. There are counters on the Internet that tell you how much calories your body burns per day (it's called basal something that I can't remember now) and from there you can decide how many calories you should eat to lose weight.
But general advice is cut down on carbs, avoid sugar, white flour, soda and fast food. Eat lots of vegetables and healthy fats. There are as many opinions on what healthy eating is as there are people, but one rule of thumb is that what you eat should come straight from the source and not from a factory and be free from all kinds of additives.

Hey look at Scotty's post Calculating your calories, it might be of help. The thing is working out hard will make you hungry, so pairing a low calorie diet with hard exercise isn't the best idea. If I were you I'd keep my calorie intake just a bit below TDEE (check Scotty's post) and start weight training. Build muscle, boost metabolism, lose fat. Cardio is great for weight-loss too, so keep on running! About seeing progress, it can take up to a month before you see visible results. Use a measuring tape to take a few measurements like waist, chest...

I really understand your frustration! But I seriously don't get the numbers you're posting:

1. 1600 cals per day is a very low intake. You're sure counting your calories right and complete? I definitely could not run for 1 1/2 hours with such low calories! If the numbers are right it may be that your body is already  in emergency mode. That means that your intake is way too low over a long period and your metabolism is set to a minimum. That means that you are on a low energy level (your body tries to burn as little as possible as it fears that it cannot get enough nutrition) and on the other hand tries to store (fat) as much as it can. That's actually the problem of all diets. This would be a reason why you feel tired after working out. Do you also feel cold often?
Long story short: definitely eat more, but lean. Proteins, veggies, and also some carbs (about 30%).

2.  Sorry bro, but I doubt your burning figure. Following a quick calculation, I'd say, you're burning MAX 900 cals with running and walking. Know that top athletes are able to burn about 750 cals per hour - and 99% of us do not fit in that category. Rule of thumb: really tough cardio (heart rate 170 and above) burns 600/hr, walking about 400 - or less! Don't trust the steps and calory calculator on your phone, that's more a (bad) guess. Don't trust most of the calories calculated by the heart rate monitors either, they are also sometimes set too high.

My suggestion: Keep your good work, eat a little more (I'd say a minimum of 2000 cals), keep running, and the results will come. But it may take some time.

And: as long as you're not losing, enjoy the health effect of your cardio - because at the end of the day it's not the 5 extra pounds that count, but the increase in fitness and the living of a long healthy life, isn't it?!

Best of luck!

You don't need to join a gym for weight training. You can do it at home, either bodyweight exercises or with at home gym equipment like dumbbells, barbell and pull up bar.

There's nothing wrong with eating spices, you don't have to quit that. Some spices are actually known to boost metabolism. It's really hard to give diet suggestions to someone living somewhere else in th world, because it's impossible to know what food culture you have, what foods are available to you etc. But you need to eat vegetables every single day, half your plate should be vegetables each meal. Eat vegetables, chicken, fish, meat, healthy fats like nuts and seeds, oils. It's not that hard, you eat homemade food and vegetables, that's it.
