God doesn't care. It's a tool for the person. When you give up something you enjoy you think about it, this can lead to more introspection. Fasting has been used in many faiths and even by people who aren't religious. Also doing it as a group, like at Lent can be really rewarding. There's support from other people, discussion and a connection to the community. It's suppose to be a time to take a step back and just reflect. Are some people better at this than other, certainly.
