Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.  In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence from meat and meat products.
The norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two small meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding from age 14 on wards.
