So I have lived with many different Catholics before and something I am still confused about. On Fridays, what isn't allowed to be eaten? Some people say only fish, others say no meat at all, and very few have said you can eat white meat no red meat.

  • Fish is not considered meat because blood doesn't flow through the meat of the fish. Just the organs. While warm blooded animals blood does flow through the meat, flesh. So we are not to eat anything that comes from a warm blooded animal.

  • Meat equals red and white meat. Fish (for some reason I cannot remember) is not considered meat.
