This is a kind of sacrifice that is not sanctioned by God for it will not lead anyone to salvation!!! This is nothing but a show of hypocrisy!!! You are not to harm your body but protect it!!!
Meanwhile, a Roman Catholic Dictionary states that:
"There is no mention in the Scripture of the observance of Lent,or, indeed, of any determined time for fasting among Christians."
Reference:(London: Routledge & Kegan Paul Limited, 1960, s.v. "Lent").
