it dawned on me just how many forms of vegetarianism there is.

i'm a lacto vegetarian, but i don't drink milk,eat ice cream etc. basically the only dairy i eat is the odd bit of cheese (i think i should invent a new name for it )

anyway,i was just interested to hear what type of veg*n you all are

Vegan, but I don't always ask questions about honey and other trace ingredients when I'm at a restaurant.

I'm ovo-lacto vegetarian as of yesterday. I was ovo-lacto for 12 years and went back to eating meat for about 3 years and now I'm back.



I confess to not being a very ethical eater at the moment. I need to reread some of Robbin's books to jumpstart that.



I primarily eat low fat cottage cheese and other cheeses, yogurt, and fat free milk. All in moderation and usually organic. I also eat organic eggs about two or three times a week. This helps me to get protein, calcium and regulate my unstable blood sugars, which I know can all be accomplished with vegan food. It's just my preference today.



I love vegan food and have tons of vegan cook books and eat vegan often.

Lacto-ovo but I really very rarely eat eggs unless they are an ingredient in the only vegetarian meal and I usually use Earth Balance and soy/rice milk. I'm the same as the OP, I eat cheese because my mom seems to think its the only good source of protein.

I thought I was vegan until I joined VB. I'm a strict vegetarian who doesn't eat meat(obviously), dairy, eggs, honey, fish. I always check for trace ingredients. I don't call myself vegan because I still own a few articles of clothing/shoes that are derived from animals, like wool and leather. All of my new purchases are animal friendly however.

That sounds vegan to me, Karen. My understanding (after 2.5 years here) is that it's not considered unvegan to continue wearing leather etc. that has already been purchased. Some people aren't comfortable with it, but it isn't causing additional harm.

I call myself vegan. It might be argued that I am not. I don't purchase honey and except for rare exception I don't purchase products with honey. However if I am being served a product and it is vegan except for the honey I will take it.



Other than the honey issue I am 100% vegan. Call me whatever you like.

I'm lacto ovo. I like yoghurt, apart from that I only have smallish amounts of cheese and milk. I like hard boiled eggs in the summer on salads.

I'm something like a 90% vegan. I don't purchase or consume eggs, dairy or honey in whole form, but I still eat certain foods containing that stuff, such as my mother's chocolate chip cookies. I'm also trying to convert to a vegan lifestyle, but it's going to take a long while...

Lots of lacto, not so much ovo, and I'm not so terribly picky about trace ingredients.

Vegan, no honey, no animal products (at least, none that I've knowingly consumed). Even traveled a couple hours to buy "Black Spot" vegan sneakers.

Lacto-Ovo, but I try and keep the dairy down to a min and I'm pretty ignorant about trace ingredients.

Is black spot a brand or does it mean something else?

Both. Kinda. It's an "un-brand".

Formally lacto-ovo. Stopped drinking milk in 2004. Ate a total of a dozen eggs in 2005. Stopped eating honey years ago.



Currently approx. 2 weeks into new vegan diet-style - I was already living a vegan lifestyle with regard to leather etc - and going through cheese-withdrawl.

I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian , although I don't eat cheese (at all...). I rarely consume eggs, maybe once a week, but do find it hard to give up milk (i'm allergic to soy AND rice milk....)

I have been veggie about three months but then went vegan about a month ago and trying to phase out the non-food products in our house that aren't vegan. Food-wise, no meat, eggs, cheese, milk etc. It's hard w/o cracker barrel sharp cheddar or crab legs but I haven't died yet from not having them.

Yeah, what's in a name? That which you call a vegan, by any other name, would still be an awesome person! Sometimes I crack myself up!

Oh man, did I ever go through cheese withdrawls too, so I feel for you. When I gave up meat I never missed it. I have never once had a craving for it. Same when I gave up eggs and all dairy products except cheese. A couple times in the weeks after giving up cheese I would wake up in a cold sweat - I would dream about it all the time - for a while I thought I was gonna go insane.

vegetarian, I won't drink milk or eat eggs by themselves but if they are ingredients in something else I don't make a big deal about it although I try to limit them.
