'restricting' and 'begun' don't work together...different tenses...so A doesn't work.
'restricted' and 'providing' don't work together...so E doesn't work.
"restricted in calorie content that provides all the required nutrients"...'that' modifies 'calorie content'...so C doesn't work
"A diet...beginning"...should read "A diet...that begins" ... so D doesn't work.

therefore, B has to be the answer.
