If you are eating lots of fruits and vegetables and some nuts and seeds I think you'll be fine in terms of vitamins and minerals. I would look more at food quality and macro nutrients. What kind of foods are you going to eat? Lots of carbohydrates, especially processed and refined ones, will lead to poorer quality weight loss than diets with higher protein or fat content.

If you stick to less processed, lower carb, or at least lower glycemic index, carbohydrates this probably won't be too much of a problem, but it's something to think about.
