Getting fat is purely a matter of consuming more calories than one burns.
Where those calories come from is irrelevant.

When you are 75, you cannot afford _not_ to keep moving. You can be sedentary
when you are young without much lasting effect on your health, but being
sedentary when you are old just speeds you towards the grave. The more active
you are, the more active you can be. The less active you are, the less
activity you'll be able to tolerate.

All tortillas are low in fat unless fat is specifically added to them.

Fat is responsible for most of the taste of a great many foods. For example,
meat from different animals tastes different because of differences in the
composition of the fat that goes with the meat. The leaner the meat, the less
distinctive (and intense) the taste.
