Dietary Restrictions During Lent
On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday: Obligatory from age 18 until age 59, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but they are not to equal that of a full meal.The rule of abstinence from meat is binding upon Catholics aged 14 and up.
Fridays of Lent: Obligatory for all Catholics aged 14 and up, no meat or meat by products may be eaten. Optional fasting for all Catholics.
Go further: Some people opt to have several meatless meals each week, skip a meal once or twice per week, and/or reduce serving portions. The universal and ancient discipline of fasting helps us to strengthen the virtue of patience, become more sympathetic to the poor, and reveal to us how much we think about food.
