Vegetarianism and its varieties

Veganism – a diet based only on products of plant origin: grains, fruit, vegetables and nuts. Veganism completely excludes products of animal origin from everyday life. This concerns food (meat, fish, eggs, milk and honey), cosmetics as well as leather, silk and wool clothing. One can distinguish several varieties of veganism:

Fruitarianism – a diet based on fruit in 75%.

Vitarianism – only raw vegetables and fruit.

Macrobiotics – only grains, vegetables and cereal products.

Lactovegetarianism – beside plant products, it also uses milk and dairy products.

Lacto-ovo-vegetarianism – a diet based on products of plant origin, milk and eggs.

Semi-vegetarianism – it excludes only red meat. This diet is based on plant products, fish, poultry, eggs and milk.
