I'm Catholic also and I've heard numerous things about it but even though you are over 14 I would say that this is an exception to fasting. Since it is related to your health, you should be exempt. You can always talk to a priest or someone with more knowledge too. I live on a Catholic campus with numerous resources and know a few people on campus who have eating disorders and they choose to not fast. Overall, you have to do what's best for you and what keeps you healthy. I don't think there's anything wrong with playing it by ear.
