Default Holy Week = NO MEAT???

I reciently heard that we are supposed to abstain from all meat from Palm Sunday to Easter. Is this true? If so, what reference can I use to support this statement?

Thank you.

Many things will be said about this week, Holy Week, that pertains to personal piety or ethnic traditions. They are all good for the individual but are not required. We should maintain our Lenten sacrifices until Thursday evening, when Lent ends and the Sacred Triduum (Three Days) begin. These three days should retain a lenten character with the required abstience from meat and a day of fast on Good Friday.
