Vegetarian Diets: Nutritional Adequacy

The days of thinking of a vegetarian diet as a diet that few people adhere to are behind us. It is vastly becoming a popular way of life. Most airlines and restaurants now offer vegetarian meals. More and more people are turning towards vegetarian diets as a way of life. Some people choose a vegetarian diet as a way to eat healthy and achieve their health goals. For others the choice to become a vegetarian is a selective choice to avoid consuming food and food products from animal origin. There are three common types of vegetarian diets:

  • Vegan or Total Vegetarian-only foods of plant origin are included in this diet plan.
  • Lacto-Vegetarian-includes all plant products and dairy products but no meat or eggs.
  • Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian-includes all plant products, dairy products and eggs.
