from The Associated Press via ABC News
Before Atkins, South Beach and Paleo, there was the Rice Diet. Shelley Winters, Lorne Greene and Buddy Hackett — all big-name entertainers of their day — made the pilgrimage to take part in the residential weight-loss program that started at Duke University's medical center. Built around a regimen of white rice and fruit, the Rice Diet became one of the country's best-known diet centers in its more than 70 years of operation.
