PostSubject: Vegetarianism.   Sun Mar 28, 2010 1:17 pm

Vegetarianism is the practice of following a plant-based diet including fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, nuts, and seeds, with or without dairy products and eggs. A vegetarian does not eat meat, including: red meat, game, poultry, fish, crustacea, shellfish, and products of animal slaughter such as animal-derived gelatin and rennet. There are a number of vegetarian diets. A lacto-vegetarian diet includes dairy products but excludes eggs, an ovo-vegetarian diet includes eggs but not dairy products, and a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet includes both eggs and dairy products. A vegan diet excludes all animal products, including dairy products, eggs, and honey. Vegetarianism may be adopted for ethical, health, environmental, religious, political, cultural, aesthetic, economic, or other reasons.

Semi-vegetarian diets consist largely of vegetarian foods, but may include fish and sometimes poultry, as well as dairy products and eggs. With these diets, the word "meat" is often defined as only mammalian flesh. A pescetarian diet, for example, includes "fish but no meat". The colloquial application of the word "vegetarian" to such diets has led vegetarian groups, such as the Vegetarian Society, to clarify that such fish or poultry-based diets are not vegetarian, due to the fact that fish and birds are animals.

Varieties of vegetarianism:



The following diets are subsets of vegetarianism.

-Lacto-ovo vegetarianism is a vegetarian diet that permits consumption of animal products such eggs, milk, and honey.

-Lacto vegetarianism permits milk but abstains from eggs.
Ovo vegetarianism permits eggs but abstains from milk.

-Veganism abstains from all animal flesh and animal products, including milk, honey, and eggs.

-Raw veganism is a diet of fresh and uncooked fruit, nuts, seeds, and vegetables.

-Fruitarianism is a diet of only fruit, nuts, seeds, and other plant matter that can be gathered without harming the plant.

-Su vegetarianism (such as in Buddhism), excludes all animal products as well as vegetables in the allium family (which have the characteristic aroma of onion and garlic): onion, garlic, scallions, leeks, or shallots.

Strict vegetarians also avoid products that may use animal ingredients not included in their labels or which use animal products in their manufacturing e.g. cheeses that use animal rennet (enzymes from animal stomach lining), gelatin (from animal skin, bones, and connective tissue), some sugars that are whitened with bone char (e.g. cane sugar, but not beet sugar) and alcohol clarified with gelatin or crushed shellfish and sturgeon.

I tried being a vegetarian but failed :( I need some form of meat to be satisfied!
I admire those who are vegetarian though.

When I was younger, maybe 10 or 12, I refused to eat meat for a while because I was too lazy to chew it.

Hehe, same! But I do respect those who are vegetarian, it's a healthy type of lifestyle to me.

I feel sort of guilty after eating some meat =/ but I can't help it, it's like my body starts craving it after a certain period of not eating it.

I know my friend and tried to see who could go the longest without meat. We both failed pretty quickly.
