Will this diet/exercise plan help with my weight and health problems?

so right now i'm 17 years old, 5'2'' and 145 pounds. i'm at risk for diabetes, heart problems, a couple different types of cancer, i'm slightly anemic and its bad. my doctor said that if i get to my ideal weight of about 115-120 pounds, these problems will virtually disappear. i was wondering how this diet/exercise plan sounded and how long it will take for me to lose this weight.

breakfast: 8oz V8 Light Acai juice, 1 apple, 1 Tbsp all-natural reduced fat peanut butter

snack: small handful pecans

lunch: 1/4 Cup each: cucumber, red bell pepper. 1/2 Cup chickpeas. with balsamic vinegar and italian spices

snack: 2 stalks celery, 14 baby carrots, 1 Tbsp classic hummus

dinner option #1: 1 Cup romaine lettuce, 1 Cup raw spinach, 1/2 Cup broccoli with 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar. 1 boca meatless spicy "chicken" patty, baked, not fried.

or dinner option #2: 2 Cups romaine lettuce with 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp vinegar. 2 Cups vegetable broth with 2 stalks celery, 10 baby carrots and 1/4 cup textured vegetable protein.

so that all adds up to:

1034 calories

43g fat

0mg cholesterol

913mg sodium

141g carbs

42g sugars

48g fiber

50g protein

for exercising: i'll be doing about 30-45 minutes of cardio each day (either walking at an incline on treadmill, elliptical or stair climber machine), 20 minutes of strength training (bowflex and free weights) and i'll be following the 100 push ups workout and the 200 sit ups workout.

how long will it take me to lose the weight i need to? can i lose it before september when school starts again? and will it help get rid of my health problems??|||Not bad love. I'm not sure about the boca meatless spicy "chicken" patty - you need to check that the level of saturated fat is not more than one third of the total. I'd rather see you have something with a lower sat fat content and more protein, like some nuts, seeds, egg if you aren't vegan, beans or peas.

Given the amount of exercise you intend, you need another 300 - 400 calories per day.

You will definitely be healthier for losing some weight. You may also need to take an iron supplement as you are anaemic.

Good luck
