The Sikh diet reflects:

1) The country/community in which they live
2) The parents
3) The person's own food preferences.

There is no special Sikh diet, if that's what you were wondering. Minus parshad, but don't even concern yourself with that. That's more of a custom.

100% correct. There is no restriction on Sikh diet bar Kuttha Meat i.e. Ritually sacrificed meat.

Sikh's are not meant to eat beef, as cow is considered scared, also cigarettes and hoca, are a no no, the reason guru gobind singh horse refused to cross a tobacco field, and for the hoca, it is because it encourages laziness as it takes a long time to consume and the men tend to gossip when smoking it.

Diet
Sikhs who have taken Amrit (baptised) are
vegetarians. They will
exclude from their diet eggs, fish and any
ingredients with animal derivatives or cooked in animal fat. Dairy produce is acceptable providing it is free from animal fat e.g. Cheese made from non
animal rennet.

Nonsense

Baptised Sikhs are only excluded from Kuttha or ritually sacrificed meat!!

Sikh Rehat Maryada
— In the Rehat Maryada, section six, it states:

The undermentioned four transgressions (tabooed practices) must be avoided:

1. Dishonouring the hair
2. Eating the meat of an animal slaughtered the Muslim way (Kutha)
3. Cohabiting with a person other than one's spouse
4. Using tobacco.
The Singh of Singhs Profile
Sikhs can eat meat or vegetarian food, it is purely their own choice.
An Amritdhari cannot eat Kuttha meat or that which is ritually sacrificed, like Halal. Even Amritdhari's can eat meat.
