This kind of "fasting" sounds like pretty much how my dad eats NEARLY 100% of the time.
(Cannot deny the obvious health benefits; he started eating like this a few years ago and I've gone from worrying about his health and longevity at times, to being like "holy crap, he's gotten spry for an old man.")
So I'm curious - if someone's regular diet already precludes all of the foods they're supposed to go without when fasting -- would they be recommended to forego "extra" things in the spirit of obedience, or to attain a spiritual condition or state above and beyond their usual?
My mom is a vegetarian and does no-dairy on Wednesdays and Fridays. My dad also kind of eats like that all the time, too (he does eat meat occasionally but mostly eats fish); he's in his 60s and is sort of defying aging because he walks everywhere and doesn't overeat.
For my husband Lent meant no meat and a lot of fish (he won't eat tilapia ever again because of it haha), but they ate dairy.
