Which diet are you?

Postby David N. Snyder » Thu Apr 14, 2011 7:36 pm

At the suggestion of cooran, here is a poll on which specific diet you mostly follow. Here are some definitions:

1. Carnivore - meat only, no other food, no fruit, veggies, grains, or bread, etc.
2. Omnivore - (almost) anything goes, red meat, poultry, fish, veggies, etc.
3. Flexitarianism - A diet that consists primarily of vegetarian food, but includes occasional exceptions for some kinds of meat.
4. Pescetarianism - A diet that is mainly vegetarian but also includes fish and sometimes other seafood.
5. Pollotarianism - A diet that is mainly vegetarian but also includes poultry.
6. Lacto-ovo vegetarianism is a vegetarian diet that permits consumption of animal products such eggs, milk, and honey.
7. Veganism abstains from all animal flesh and animal products, including milk, honey, and eggs.
8. Organic veganism - only organic vegan foods.
9. Raw veganism is a diet of fresh and uncooked fruit, nuts, seeds, and vegetables.
10. Fruitarianism is a diet of only fruit, nuts, seeds, and other plant matter that can be gathered without harming the plant (many Jains follow this diet).

I had to re-do the poll since the previous version left out 'omnivore' so please vote again if you voted before.

I should think that would be 'eleemosynatarian', from the Latin eleemosyna (alms), from the Greek ελεημοσύνης.

I consider myself an organic vegan, but I eat honey.

:bow: Almsmendicantarian would be fine too, given that pescetarian and polloterian are not even sound neologisms, they were probably made up by some pizzeria owner, given their Italian flavor :rofl:
