The experience of changing to a vegetarian diet will vary from person to person. There are many shades of green that fall short of real vegetarianism – eating less meat, or no red meat on the grounds of health or concern for the environment; refusing battery-farmed fowl or eggs or pork, or any foods one knows to be cruelly produced; simply eating less food altogether, and most commonly, eating mainly vegetable foods with the occasional return to meat. The true vegetarian, by contrast, eats no meat, fish or poultry, and some cut out animal foods altogether.
