CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Many Christians are marking the period of Lent by giving something up.

A new survey shows most Ohioans are staying away from meat during the 40-day period of penance.

Time looked at Google search data to determine the item people in each state are most interested in giving up.

Residents of Indiana are pledging to give up Chocolate, according to Time. Kentuckians are vowing to keep fried food off their plate.

 Time found that food or drink-related items were the top searches for Lent abstentions in more than half of the 50 states.

Some areas proved unpredictable in their Google searches, Time reports. In Washington, Lent observers are taking a break from dating. Residents of Georgia want to give up social media.
