Vegetarian Diets

3 Stars 5 Reviews
added on 03/29/2013
Overview There are a variety of eating patterns which one can consider a "vegetarian" diet. Traditionally, "vegetarian" means the omission of meat and meat products. A "total vegetarian," or "vegan," includes only foods from plants. A "lacto-vegetarian" also includes cheese and dairy products in addition to plant foods. If eggs are also included, one is considered a "lacto-ovo-vegetarian," or "ovo-lacto-vegetarian." Additionally, a "semi-vegetarian" will exclude red meats, but eat chicken and fish as well as plants, eggs, and dairy products. For the most part, vegetarian diets are lower in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol; however, since meat products are generally omitted, one needs to make sure the vegetarian diet includes sufficient protein, iron, vitamin B-12, vitamin D, calcium, and zinc. If carefully planned, vegetarian diets can be nutritionally adequate.
