I have constant headaches and periodically anemia. I am able to control this by a good diet which does include meats. I have kids under 14 in the house. Are these rules church laws or suggestions? I don't know how I would keep meats from the older kids and not the younger ones. Fasting might be a little hard as well, just because there are some meds that need food but if liquid isn't included in the fasting it can be done.
I used to be a very relaxed Catholic but I am trying to get more in touch with the church and its rules.
Fasting isn't suggested for young children or the elderly, I believe the church suggests an age range of 18-59. You need to use your best judgement about what the health risk is to you, The church says if you have a medical condition that makes fasting unhealthy for you then you shouldn't fast.
Maybe you could try a moderated form of fasting. Change something in your diet that you enjoy but that would not put your health at risk.
