Vegetarianism Defined

From the web page of the International Vegetarian Union:

Vegetarianism includes veganism and is defined as the practice of not eating meat, poultry or fish or their by-products, with or without the use of dairy products or eggs.

Vegan: excludes animal flesh (meat, poultry, fish and seafood), animal products (eggs and dairy), and usually excludes honey and the wearing and use of animal products (leather, silk, wool, lanolin, gelatin...).

Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian: same as VEGAN (see above), but also eats eggs and milk products.

Lacto Vegetarian: Same as VEGAN, but also consumes milk and milk products. Common in India.

From the web page of the Harvard Health Blog. 

Plant Based or Plant Forward Diet. 

Plant-based or plant-forward eating patterns focus on foods primarily from plants. This includes not only fruits and vegetables, but also nuts, seeds, oils, whole grains, legumes, and beans.
