You are absolutely right in thinking that a diabetic diet is much like a normal diet minus the fast foods, high sugar & high calorie items. Have a look at the diabetic food pyramid of american diabetes association. Its much like what we eat everyday minus the nhealthy stuff.

A healthy diet provides adequate calories whereas the weight-loss diets are low on calories. Different diet plans use different combinations of food items & most would stress on as you say lots of grains, fruits, and vegies while cutting calories.
