ok i found it - just had to search peta2 boards ---- anyway this is what i was referring to ----------
Type 1) Semi-vegetarians - These 'vegetarians' eat all types of foods in their diet - including meat. However these individuals limit the amount of animal products they consume. They do eat animals though, which is why they should just be called omnivores instead of vegetarians.
Type 2) Pesco-omnivore - They don't eat any meat EXCEPT for fish. They do eat seafood.
Type 3) Pollo-omnivore - They don't eat any meat EXCEPT for poultry (chicken, turkey, duck, etc.).
Type 4) Lacto vegetarians - They don't eat meat, but do consume milk, butter, and cheese. (dairy)
Type 5) Lacto-ovo vegetarians - They don't eat meat, but do consume milk, butter, eggs and cheese. (dairy)
Type 6) Veganarians - I laughed out loud when I heard this one, but then I realized that I WAS one (back when I heard about this). Veganarians are Lacto-ovo vegetarians, but they limit the amount of dairy and eggs that they eat. They also avoid buying products that were tested on animals, and they don't wear clothing or jewelry that is made from animals.
Type 7) Vegans - These are the only real vegetarians, because they only eat veggies (and legumes, etc.). They avoid all animal products in their diet, such as meat, dairy products, even certain non-essential vitamins that only come from animals. They also avoid things that were tested on animals, and clothing/jewelry that is made from animals. The cruelty-free way to be! Like me!
Type 8) Fruitarians - Fruitarians exclude all foods of animal origin as well as cereals (grains). Diet mainly comprises raw and dried fruits, nuts, olive oil, occasionally legumes. <-- copied that from a website. I'm not sure exactly what they eat, that's just what the page said. Sounds crazy to me. (no offense any fruitarians out there!)
Type 9) Freegans - These people will eat meat as long as they didn't pay for it or support the trade/industry. For example, if McDonalds was giving away free burgers, they would turn them down, because McDonalds would probably count that as 1 person who loves their burgers for their survey or whatever. But if they were over someone's house and there happened to be a burger that someone already got from McDonalds, they would eat it, because they weren't really supporting or helping McDonalds. They just say that they were making sure that that cow's life didn't go to waste. Same thing with trash cans; for example, Mickey Ds tosses their breakfast sandwiches when lunch time kicks in, so perfectly good sandwiches are just thrown out. So a freegan would go out back and dig them out and eat them. And the same thing goes for clothing; if they came across some leather shoes in a trash can, or if someone gave them one of their old pairs, they would wear them. They just wouldn't buy them from the actual manufactuer or distributor.
