During the test, the following could be one of the fastest ways to solve this problem:

Adjective "seeming" wrongly modifies another adjective "less" - adverb "seemingly" should be used to modify an adjective. Thus A and C can be eliminated.

The present participle modifier "permitting" wrongly modifies the subject of the previous clause "many". Hence D and E can be eliminated.

B is the correct option.

Eliminate C and E because of LIKE
Like - used for comparison nouns,noun phrases,pronouns only

Not clear how permitting is modifying the Subject 'Many' , after the that clause it should modify Atkins diet .

So again any reason why choice E is wrong based on grammar or logic ??

yes, E is incorrect because it used 'like' to present examples. Remember on GMAT, Like can never be used to provide examples.
