When they say no nightshades they are generally looking at people with autoimmune disease. If you have a lot of inflammation or an autoimmune condition the protocol is no processed food, drugs and alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy, nuts, seeds, eggs, tomatoes, potatoes, bell peppers, eggplants, and probably something else that I forgot was a nightshade. Foods to eat are meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, olive oil, coconut, and they say you can have sweet potato, although I think this can be potentially irritating to some. I hope your case isn't so bad that you need to do all of that. If you think you're generally healthy and just want to be healthier or lose some weight then the first 5 are what to eliminate.
