    ha, fish for the protein...well, they are more like non fatty meat eating ppl.
    for health reasons, thus turning to the greens.

    I am a strict vegetarian when i go to a pub. Wheat, malt, barley, hops all brewed together and served in a nice tall glass.

    Those vegetarians who avoid garlic, onions, spring onions, leeks, etc. are probably doing it for religious reasons as such items are said to encourage emotions like anger, turmoil, etc. Those vegetarians who avoid eggs & diary products are known as vegans, if I remember correctly.

    I have met several "ang mohs" and some locals who are vegetarians. Later I discovered they are "seafood vegetarian", "fish vegetarians", etc. which are strictly not vegetarianism. It's just that they avoid meat, or sometimes, red meat (so they could eat chicken ).

    The most ridiculous case I have come across was an ex-colleague who proudly claims that she's a vegetarian, but she would share other ppl's food, e.g. pick on other's char kueh teow or laksa, as long as she doesn't eat the cockles, the sausages (the meat), so that she gets to eat and taste the same food as non-vegetarians.

    for fruits n vegetables my approach is to just eat as much as possible.

    for protein intake, fish, chicken, eggwhite, soya, beancurd, milk, powder

    as for read meat, i ry to cut down as much as possible

    the rest is carbo all the way: bread/rice/noodle/etc

    snacks i cut down quite a bit but still prone to chocolates/biscuit/chips/fried stuff ..hehe

    drinks: water, ribena, milo+ensure+quaker oats, hundred plus, fruitjuice, vitagen. no alcohol

    supplements: redoxon vitamin C (will make me feel recharged after long swims), glucosamine, garlic extract pills, and whatever my family members buy i just pop in one or 2
