GPLSeveral passionate fasters offered these tips to help others get started or enhance their current fasting practices.

  • Avoid eating between meals on Wednesdays.
  • Avoid social media one night per week.
  • Skip one meal this week and give the money for the meal to a charity or food shelf.
  • Instead of going out for lunch tomorrow, go to church during your lunch hour and eat a simple bag lunch on your return trip.
  • Instead of browsing the Internet on your cell phone while you are waiting, pray.
  • Replace 15 minutes of your evening Twitter, Instagram or Facebook time with browsing Catholic news, letters from Pope Francis or biographies of saints.
