Reducing your meat consumption of any kind is helpful for animals. I fully support Pescetarians. That being said I sometimes get annoyed when they insist on calling themselves 'vegetarian' when a vegetarian doesn't eat any flesh.
How do you feel about Pescetarians?

I was one before I went fully vegan! Becoming more informed about how animal products are made and how they can effect our body made me transition fully.

I put other. At the end of the day what they do with their diet is none of my business. I do think they're taking a huge step in the right direction though.
I just wish that there was more information readily available online regarding fish farming, what it entails, and its consequences. I'm of the opinion that pescetarians who are doing this out of compassion would transition over to vegetarianism or veganism if they knew more about this. I could be totally wrong on that of course.

I still consider them meat eaters, I guess. I just don't see why there has to be a word for them. You either eat animals or you don't, I don't see why "pescetarian" is a label of a group of people, they still eat animals. I have no problem with them at all, really, I just feel like it's an unnecessary shortcut used when people don't want to explain that they are "vegetarian except I still eat fish."

I always take things too far.

I am pescetarian. I was a vegetarian when I started except I think I was like six at the time and my parents wouldn't let cut fish out because I became really unhealthy. Probably because I was the only vegetarian in my family, so I made most of my own meals, and six year olds aren't really known for their culinary skills, so I would just eat whatever. Now I am starting to move over to complete vegetarianism, and eventually when I move out veganism.

I've been pescatarian for 8 months now but my choice to not eat meat isn't really because I'm all like "save the animals!" or something. Since I have issues with my gallbladder (genetics) I stopped eating red meat about 8 years ago. I have never been a fan of pork in any way, shape, or form. I would still eat chicken, turkey, and seafood but not that often. I've always been weird about meat. It really creeps me out and it just kept getting worse and worse for me so I finally decided to just stop eating it altogether. Seafood doesn't creep me out so I'll have it once or twice a week but I mainly get my protein from legumes, tofu, meat alternatives, etc. I will admit I am crazy about animals so it does make me feel better knowing I'm not eating them anymore (iiccckkkkkk). I don't feel a "connection" toward fish/shellfish, though, so it doesn't bother me. If vegans or vegetarians have a problem with that, then they can kiss my pescatarian butt!!

I find nothing wrong with it, but I dislike when someone who is pescatarian calls themself vegetarian. I hate when they say "I'm vegetarian but I eat fish".

The thing about pescetarians is that either they call themselves vegetarian. Or they only eat fish and then they only eat white meat and so on.

I'm a pescetarian and its fine. It makes it a little bit easier when it comes to preparing food but i'm planning on adopting a raw vegan lifestyle. (My mum cooks all my meals and i feel guilty when she has to cook two separate meals because my whole family is pescetarian and don't want me going vegan). But if you want to go pescatarian its just as good as being vegetarian but still don't overdo it on fish and chicken. Hope this helps!
I just want the best body! Calorie and exercise obsessed!
