    Vegetarians do not eat animals what so ever. I know, The correct term is Pescatarian. They eat fish because it has high omega. And other nutrients.

    Nope, vegetarian doesn't eat fish nor eggs. ANything that involve animals are totally out. However, I do notice that vegetarians are plump in size compare to those who eat meats. Flour does the work !

      Such a blanket generalization is unwarranted.  Vegetarians, as a class, are no more plump than non-vegetarians, and usually, far less so.  It's not the "carbs" it's what you dress them with--butter, etc.  Pig out on twinkies; you'll get fat anyway!

    I'm pescatarian. For simplicity sake for most people, I say I'm vegetarian. Technically, a vegetarian is a lacto-ovo-vegan. That is, a vegan who eats dairy and eggs. What I am is a pesca-lacto-ovo-vegan. Sounds silly talking about vegans who eat animal products smile

      What makes it okay for you to eat fish, but not other meat?

    - a vegetarian does not eat animals of any sort, no meat or fish, but does eat eggs and dairy produce

    - somebody who doesn't eat meat but does eat fish is a pescatarian

    - somebody who doesn't eat any animal products either, like eggs or dairy produce is a vegan

    there are a whole bunch of other categories, I remember reading an amusing hub on the subject here once, but can't rememeber whose it was

    There are vegans who are simply don't eat red meat or animals that are kept in pens, then slaughtered. They still might eat organic free-range chicken, turkey, or fish. I have friends that fall in to this category.

      Vegans are supposed to be even stricter with the animal products they eat, aren't they?

      That does not sound vegan or vegetarian to me, That just sounds like a diet based on religious grounds.

      Vegans do not eat ANY food from an animal source, organic, free-range or otherwise.

      Thanks for the correction. I am really poorly informed in this topic.

    A vegetarian does NOT eat fish.  Put another way, we don't eat anything that once had a face. ...
