Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are Fast Days for Catholics from their 18th through 59th birthday. Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent are also days of abstinence from meat for all who are over 14 years of age. "Fasting" means eating only one full/regular meal during the day, making other meals smaller and no snacks (except beverages). People with special medical conditions, fragile health or other serious reasons are NOT REQUIRED to fast.
