Since he was warm blooded, the whole fast was based on avoiding meat and juices on animals that are cold blooded which is why Jesus fasted but only ate fish.  

 Since the, this tradition is being followed by the Catholics of Polish and German descents. The leaders of Catholics guide their people to avoid the meat of warm blooded animals on Friday for good luck and to honor Jesus whom they consider the son of God. Considering these events and customs, many restaurants around Kentucky offer fish fries to observe this event on Fridays and Wednesdays as well in certain parts.
