While searching for a resto that serves veg meals that my siblings and I planning to have dinner this coming Saturday, I’m the kind of person whose choosy in suggesting food joint to them. I kept on telling them that if they planned to eat in a fancy restaurant, they must have that suits my diet.
According to Buzzle’s website, there are different kinds of vegetarian:
They only indulge in food sources that qualify as fruits although including add-ons like seeds and nuts in some cases. Grains, veggies and animal produce are avoided, where a true fruitarian is one whose diet is largely based on eating fruit only.
They only eat vegetable-based food but indulge in eggs / dairy products. They don’t eat meat of any sort, but consume dairy products / eggs.
Also known as lactarians, they allow dairy products into their diet, except eggs as part of the diet. Gelatin,which is made from the connective tissue of animals and rennet prohibited in this kind of diet. There are substitutes for animal rennet that are vegetable-based, making it suitable for lacto vegetarians to consume.
They include eggs in their diet but no dairy products of any kind. They prefer consuming free-range eggs as opposed to those that are produced from caged hens.
This kind of vegetarian consumes anything but they abstains from meat of all kinds except fish and shellfish. They allowed dairy products, eggs and other food ingredients in their diet but they stay clear from animal meat.
They also called semi-vegetarianism because they chooses to eat meat not on a daily basis.

I am not a vegetarian. But I always like the idea of becoming a FRUITARIAN. I actually tried being one before but failed :-(sigh. Maybe, I should be a fruitarian again so I will lose weight na!
ang galing ah. i’ve never known a vegan. pero seriously, how do you do it? kasi, every time i’m around meat, especially delicious meals, hindi ko talaga nareresist. at least your diet forces you to be really healthy. :)
