What is the difference between a vegetarian diet and a plant based diet?
My daughter is a vegetarian. She allows dairy products and eggs in her diet. A few years ago she was vegan--I think that is what a plant-based diet is. No dairy products, no eggs, not even honey. Nothing produced by an animal. I hope that helps.
plant based diet is more or less a raw food eater. These people only eat raw foods such as fruit veggies and other things that are picked cleaned and eaten. No cooking is involved if it is then only things like legumes and rice is consumed.
for the most part raw food eaters consume tons of food in a single sitting just to get the calorie intake that they need for one day. yes I do mean a ton.
vegetarians include dairy and eggs in their diet for many reasons not just for taste or fun either. most do for protein supplement, calorie boosting and yes even taste in certain dishes.
the difference between raw food eaters and vegetarianism is how the food is prepared not what they eat...
Thank you bri36 for the explanation. Have you followed a plant-based diet? It sound as though it would be difficult to get the proper nutrients.
no not at all just know a lot of people who are both types of vegetarian eater.
