About This Project

Some Orthodox Christians restrict their consumption of animal products during Lent, the 40+ days before Easter/Pascha. It remains unclear if or how this practice influences health and/or sense of well-being. This study will explore if Orthodox Christians in the United States experience any changes in markers of health, energy, and mood during their Lenten season and how any changes may be related to short-term shifts in diet or other lifestyle factors.

Blast off!
