Meat isn't really the problem with dieting. It's all the sugars and starches people eat. Maybe you won't be able to eat the mac-n-cheese with the 2 gallons of cream in it. Or eat potatoes, bread, and pasta on the side.
But a nice smoked meat could be used in a number of healthy dishes.
Now if you're a brewer, that would be hard to do and diet, I'd think :(
