So I have heard of this thing called the ‘British Burrito.’

Basically, you take a Yorkshire pudding, roll it flat, and then wrap the roast beef of Old England inside of it.  Gravy on the side.  …This is a cruel concept for anybody trying to watch his diet.  Which I am unfortunately finding it more and more necessary to do, these days.  Why could nobody have suggested that I learn to fry up a bread with meat fat when I was, say, 25?  I had the metabolism for such things back then!

[pause]

Sorry.

PS: I probably will try the meatless pudding, at that (using butter for the fat). It seems reasonably easy enough to make, and I have all the ingredients close to hand. Flour, milk, eggs and butter, essentially.

    Metabolism is flexible, and *can* be made to process, more or less, like it did back in the Carter Administration .. but you have to put in the miles (walking or cycling) and hours (in a gym-like setting pushing heavy things around) to get there…

    Put more simply .. more time on the treadmill watching TV, less time on the comfy chair playing Dwarf Fortress.

      I have some hopes that the treadmill regimen will stick.

        Incrementalism works really well .. for a typical person, I may suggest that you start by trying to walk slowly on the treadmill for an entire half-hour sitcom .. then two of ’em (something you can binge-watch, even in reruns) once or twice a week.
        .
        Then .. increase the speed at every other commercial break.
        .
        Then .. add another day per week.
        .
        Ease into it, is the point. Don’t try to jump straight into it, sneak up on it.

        Works for some, doesn’t work for others.
