Full Answer

Strict vegetarians avoid all fish, meat and poultry. Pescatarians are classified as partial vegetarians, according to Harvard Women’s Health Watch. Pollo-vegetarians also belong to this sub-group. Pollo-vegetarians include small amounts of poultry into their plant-based diet. Other forms of vegetarians include lacto-ovo vegetarians and vegans. Lacto-ovo vegetarians don’t eat meat, but they do consume eggs and milk-based products. Vegans, on the other hand, don’t eat any meat or products derived from meat such as eggs, milk, cheese and gelatin.
