Fasting today as a christan?
God required the Israelites to fast on Atonement Day, but he eliminated that observance after Jesus permanently atoned for the sins of repentant people. (Hebrews 9:24-26; 1 Peter 3:18) Christians are not under the Mosaic Law, of which Atonement Day was a part. (Romans 10:4; Colossians 2:13, 14) Therefore, each Christian may decide for himself whether to fast.—Romans 14:1-4.

Unless the only Church that Jesus Christ ever personally founded, authorized, empowered and perpetually guaranteed (the Church that also compiled, certified, wrote and first translated the Bible) - the Holy Catholic Church - rules otherwise.Source(s): www.askmeaboutgod.org

Yes, one shouldn't fast if he doesn't have the health to do so. But fasting was a part of early Christianity.

Romans 3:29 Or is God the God of the Jews only? Isn’t he also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, he is indeed the God of the Gentiles; 30 because, as you will admit, God is one. Therefore, he will consider righteous the circumcised on the ground of trusting and the uncircumcised through that same trusting. 31 Does it follow that we abolish Torah by this trusting? Heaven forbid! On the contrary, we confirm Torah.
