What is a vegetarian diet?

Asked: What is a vegetarian diet?

The Vegetarian Society defines a vegetarian as: "Someone who lives on a diet of grains, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables and fruits with, or without, the use of dairy products and eggs. A vegetarian does not eat any meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish or by-products of slaughter."

There are different types of vegetarian:

* Lacto-ovo-vegetarians eat both dairy products and eggs; this is the most common type of vegetarian diet.

* Lacto-vegetarians eat dairy products but avoid eggs.

* Vegans do not eat dairy products, eggs, or any other products which are derived from animals.

Eggs: Many lacto-ovo vegetarians will only eat free-range eggs. This is because of welfare objections to the intensive farming of hens. Through its Vegetarian Society Approved trade mark, the Vegetarian Society only endorses products containing free-range eggs.

How to be a HEALTHY vegetarian?

Bree Asked: How to be a HEALTHY vegetarian?

Recently asked how to stop being one all together, but I have been convinced to not quit. Instead, just change my eating habits around a bit. This has to be affordable, and something my mother would be able to handle, as I am 15 years old, so I still live with my parents.

I decided to ask the Vegetarian community, because you all seem to lead healthy, normal lifestyles while being one.

What do I get my proteins from daily? And other things I would get from meat? Do you take vitamins specially for it?

Please be as Detailed as you can! I really want to continue being a vegetarian, it is part of my morals. I just need to know how to do it the right way.

*Also, do you consider people who eat fish vegetarian? Last time I checked…fish were animals to…*
