Well, the traditional Latin Rite fast is 40 days and partial abstinence on days when there isn't full abstinence (Sundays excepted).  If you're Eastern Rite, it's more brutal.

The 1983 code is pretty easy.  Only fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, abstinence on Fridays.  If one is following the 1983 code, they may want to give up whatever they are for all 40 days otherwise there's not too much difference between Lent and the regular year where one is expected to do some penance every Friday replacing the year-round abstinence.

(Here's a reference for anyone reading and wants to know the difference):
