That’s right, heretics, Science supports Lent

Neuroscience sheds light on how fasting and other spiritual disciplines work by training our subconscious mental processes. We think of ourselves as entirely the activity of our conscious thoughts. In reality, our brain has thousands of sub-conscious processes going on all the time. These processes are often pushing and pulling different ideas, concerns, or cravings into our consciousness. What this means is your conscious self is far less in control over who you are and what you do than you realize.  “We are not the ones driving the boat of our behavior,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman. “Who we are runs well below the surface of our conscious access.”
