Hi,

You definitely need some protein in your diet, if you are not a big meat eater try to add some beans or nuts into your diet. Protein is essential for building muscle, and muscles burn calories PASSIVELY, so that's a big big plus if you want to lose weight. What you are doing seems to be a bit excessive if you are asking me...

So here's the bad news...50 pounds in less than 2 months is impossible and not healthy at all. The max a healthy human being can lose per week is 2 pounds of fat. So in 2 months time expect at most around 20 pounds of loss. I assume some of the weight can be water weight, or even just plain muscle.

Depending on your height 120 might not even be a healthy goal. What you need to do is reconsider and apply yourself to a healthier goal, like the weight of 150 by September. I hope this helps, good luck.
