All I can say is ... Ha Ha!
My BJJ class involves 20 minutes of vigorous exercise (running, skipping, squatting, situps etc) followed by half an hour of yogic exercises and stretching, techniques, then sparring.
And I like it just fine that way. I'm sure you can find a BJJ place which gives you a fitness component too, but do you really want to leave your current school?Imports from Japan, Shipping Worldwide! Art Junkie, Scramble, BJJ Spirits, Reversal...

a) Take up judo instead.
b) Flail like the new kid everytime someone gets you in side control.
c) Talk to your instructor and see what he recomends. Are there less technical classes?
You can do situps and press ups instead of watching the mat and learning but you will get a lot less sympathy if you miss something.

I'm sorry, I should have made this clearer. I welcome any advice except from a mattress stain like Hannibal.
Please continue, all.

Muay Thai will get you fit and you wil lose weight.
Run around local park twice (20 mins)
Skip for 20 mins
Stretch 15 mins
Shadow Boxing 15 mins
Pad work for 30-45 mins
Full contact sparring 30-45 mins
Crawl back to car and go home (arms dont work for the first two weeks).
Obviously you build up to this.
Most decent MT gyms will be similar. Kicking pads all night is a great way to get in shape.

afronaut are you considering switching your MA or crosstraining in another?
I also suggest something on the line of MT, kickboxing and the like. Even with awful nutrition customs, I lost noticeable body fat in a couple of months. Not to mention that my cardio increased surprisingly.
Even the worst kickboxing school may give you a neat conditioning.
