Pescetarian Diet

Pescetarian diet is often referred to as the transition or the early stage of becoming a full-fledge vegetarian. It’s a healthy way of eating that includes fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, fish or other seafood invertebrates but blacklists some dairy products and meat. Even meat-eaters can try this special diet in order to lose weight but it is recommended to seek the help of a professional or your nutritionist to ensure a healthy way of losing unwanted fats.

Pescetarianism can also be sometimes called as “pesco-vegetarianism” but vegans strictly disdain the use of that term and insist that they are very much different from those who include fish in their recipe. That term stirred a controversy and the vegetarians strongly asserted that pescentarianism is not a valid vegan diet. The difference pointed directly to the inclusion of fish in prescetarian recipes but that gives them the edge over the other group. It is a well-known fact that most kinds of fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that are good for your health. If that is the case, then adapting this healthy eating ritual is not that bad at all despite the squabble between the two groups.

There are other hearty benefits that pescetarian recipes offer. Aside from fish, other seafood invertebrates, cereals and vegetables also serve as a good source of iron, which help in lowering the risk of anemia and vitamin D-3 deficiency. These are common ailments for vegans but in pescetarian diet, people are less likely to experience those extreme conditions because they regularly consume fish or seafood products that are rich in organic compounds that can combat the threat of heart and blood disorders.

If you want to trim down and become fit, being a pescetarian is the best way to do it. Start eating fish, vegetables, fruits and cereals now if you want to loose weight and look fab in a healthy way.

I''ve been eating vegetarian for a week now & thought I could do it. I just can''t. The only reason is b/c I LOVE fish/seafood/sushi. So I am hoping that becoming a Pescetarian will help me to achieve my goal of losing lbs, getting healthy, eating healthy. What crucial info would you suggest since I am new to all of this. thank you.

I have been going back and forth betweem vegetarian and pescetarian for 2 years now. overfishing is such a significant problem and I would feel so guilty every time I ate it. I finally have decided that it is okay to eat seafood and I should not feel bad about it. Seafood is fine and can be healthy when eaten a couple times per week. It just makes my life easier and it seems like a more balanced aproach to life. :)

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who beyond doubt knows what they’re talking about on the internet. You automatically know how to bring an issue to light and make it applicable. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe you are not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

I have been a pescetarian for 4 months aiming to be as healthy as possible and of course shedding a few lbs. I must say i''m eating tons of fresh fruit, vegetables, unsalted nuts, some organic eggs, and some orgainc dairy, legumes, and seafood I have shedded 8 lbs and most importantly feel very healthy. I''m 26 yrs old with 2 children and wanted to start a healthy living style at a young age to help prevent health issues. My sons are not pescetarian so I still do cook lean meats for them though I just make sure the meat/poultry is of course free of all steroids and added hormones...

ALSO let me mention if you are deciding on becoming pescetarian make sure all of your seafood is wild caught NOT farm raised (farm raised is cheaper but very unhealthy!!). Google what they do to farm raised fish it is so very unhealthy to consume!!!!!!
take care :)

I''ve been a pescetarian for a couple of years now and it did help me reduce weight from 169lbs to 125lbs. Am glad to find a partner who is a pescetarian as well though we find it difficult to avoid dairy products so we usually opt to nonfat or good fats(reading labels of what we eat become a habit now). So to those who wants a healthier diet or trying to lose some weight, try this one.
