Lenten fasting: Give up junk food, meat for Lent for weight loss, social justice

Catholic enter the penitential season of Lent early this year. Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday is Feb 9 and Ash Wednesday kicks off the Lenten season on Feb. 10, 2016. Still haven't decided what to give up for Lent? Why not give up sugar and abstain from meat for Lent? Not only is a meat and sugar fast good for weight loss, it's the social responsibility of developed nations to help those in need in underdeveloped nations. For uber socially responsible Lenten fasting, give up junk food too!
