“Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my metabolism the most”

"Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my metabolism the most” is a saying that has been printed on many images. That is, the things people used to eat (and burn off) when they were younger now stay with them as fat.

Wikipedia: Metabolism
Metabolism (/məˈtæbəlɪzəm/, from Greek: μεταβολή metabolē, “change") is the set of life-sustaining chemical reactions in organisms. The three main purposes of metabolism are: the conversion of food to energy to run cellular processes; the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates; and the elimination of metabolic wastes.

One of my fondest memories goes way back to when, as a little kid in Annapolis, my father, who grew up in Baltimore, would take me with him when he had to go into the city on business. I had my first kosher hot dog wrapped in grilled baloney in Baltimore. To this day, it’s one of my favorite indulgences, although not as often as I would like. Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my metabolism the most.
