Vegetarian diets include vegan, lactovegetarian and ovo-lactovegetarian food choices. Vegans eat foods from only plant sources whereas lactovegetarians include some dairy products and ovo-lactovegetarians include eggs.
A vegetarian diet is right for you because you don’t need to eat meat to feel you’ve eaten a meal. You love the variety of non-meat foods available to you and mixing things up to meet dietary protein needs fits well with your love of trying new things. A vegetarian diet is a lifestyle choice and healthy living is as important to you as weight loss. Bring on the veggie Bolognese!
