Fat Head had a post up yesterday. In it he has the picture of the dining cart scene from Silver Streak (loved that movie!)
The gist, grandma (and his high school wresting coach) knew it was carbs that were fattening and the diet plates were LC. I would point out that wrestlers employing various dietary schemes to make weight for competition are probably not a good advertising point for any diet. Meeting a number on the scale, or in the case of body builders looking ripped for competitions, is not necessarily equivalent to consuming a healthful diet (especially for the long term). Wrestlers are prevalent among the growing numbers of men with eating disorders.
