Abstinence during Lent is required at age fourteen and fasting at age eighteen. This pamphlet for teens addresses the full meaning of fasting, how it affects teens, what is required at what age, how fasting is one of the three forms of penance (and what the other two are), and how to have a meaningful fast at Lent and at other times. Also discusses the topic of eating disorders and how fasting is unrelated to anorexia.

Back cover copy

Why would anyone, especially a normal teen, want to fast? Fasting goes directly against the message we hear almost every day: Get as much as you can of everything you find attractive. But many normal teens occasionally fast and consider it a good experience. This pamphlet explores the reasons for fasting (some don't involve penance), describes the many types of fasts (some don't involve food), and answers the most common questions teens have about giving up something good to get something even better.
