I'm not Catholic, but my sweetie and I (and a few other people we 
know) follow the medieval Lenten fast- as a way of further 
understanding the lives and culture of these weird medieval folks 
we're learning about. I wasn't eating stockfish and herring for 8 
weeks, but fish & chips whenever we went out to eat was bad enough!

>how about shellfish?

Yup. But even shrimp gets boring fast. And most shellfish has butter 
or cream-based sauces on it. And tartar sauce is a no-no too.

Usually lose a little weight tho...
