Wait, is this a real thing? I grew up Catholic, and I don't remember anyone who wasn't Catholic going along with the Lenten command of self-denial.
Putting better diet choices into practice is a good idea and not easy, but that is not what Lent is. The idea of Lent is not to sacrifice, but that you have been slackin', poor boy, and you are gonna git it in the end if'n you don't get correct. I try to eschew superstition all year long.
Superstition ain't the way.
