    VEGETARIAN: Vegetarian is a blanket term used to describe a person who does not consume meat, poultry, fish, or seafood.This grouping includes Vegans and the various sub-categories of Vegetarian; however, it generally implies someone who has less dietary restrictions than a Vegan.


    SEMI-VEGETARIAN: The term Semi-Vegetarian is usually used to describe someone who is a vegetarian who consumes dairy products, eggs, chicken, and fish, but does not consume other animal flesh.


    OVO-LACTO-VEGETARIAN: Ovo-lacto vegetarians are Vegetarians who do not consume meat, poultry, fish, and seafood, but do consume eggs and milk. This is the largest group of Vegetarians.


    OVO-VEGETARIAN: Ovo-vegetarian is a term used to describe someone who would be a vegan if they did not consume eggs.


    LACTO-VEGETARIAN: Lacto-Vegetarian is a term used to describe someone who would be a vegan if they did not consume milk.


    VEGAN: Vegan is the strictest sub-category of Vegetarians. Vegans do not consume any animal products or by-products. Some go as far as not even consuming honey and yeast. Others do not wear any clothing made from animal products.


    Important: Take some time to figure out for yourself, what group you will belong to when you become a Vegetarian. You will want to consider both dietary and ethical reasons for choosing this lifestyle.
