Vegetarianism involves the restriction of food consumption to only fruits, nuts, and other food substances of vegetarian origin. There are different types of vegetarian diets. Most vegetarian diets do not consume any animal products or by-products. The diets range from few restrictions on the type of food one should take to more restrictions. Other vegetarian diets exclude not only animal foods, but also seafood. Examples of vegan diets, starting from the least to the most restrictive, include; vegan, flexitarian or semi-vegetarian, pescovegeterian, lacto vegetarian, ovo vegetarian, lacto-ovo vegetarian, macrobiotic diet, and fruitarian.
