  • A Vegetarian doesn't eat meat, but they do eat animal products, such as cheese, milk and eggs. I have also met a few that will eat fish.

    A Vegan doesn't eat any sort of animal product at all.

  • Pescatarians eat fish; vegetarians do not eat any animal flesh; vegans do not consume any animal products, including honey.

  • vegans are really strict and eat no animal products whatsoever. I know a few that don't use leather products or any makeup and items even tested on animals. However I do not know if that holds true to all. My daughter is a lacto-something vegetarian. She eats eggs, milk, cheese and does occassionally eat fish. She does not eat any kind of meat. There are different "extremes" to being a vegetarian. But a vegan is the most strict.
