What is a pescetarianism and who’s a pescetarian?
Pesceterian is a term that is derived from the Italian word meaning fish “pesce” with a blend of English “vegetarian” and thus we have pescetarian.
So a pesceterian is a person who eats fish and/or other seafood but not the flesh of other animals. One of the most commonly cited reasons is that of , based on findings that red meat is detrimental to health in many cases due to non-lean red meats containing high amounts of saturated fats, choline and carnitine. Eating certain kinds of fish raises HDL levels, and some fish are a convenient source of omega-3 fatty acids, and have numerous health benefits in one food variety. A 1999 meta-analysis of five studies comparing vegetarian and non-vegetarian mortality rates in Western countries found that in comparison with regular meat-eaters, mortality from ischemic heart disease was 34% lower in Pescetarians.
Now this may be a great way for someone to transition into a more plant-based diet. Eliminating read meats and other kinds of meats will really boost someones health and reduce the risk of heart disease and even obesity.
So, I suggest if someone’s is planning on getting healthier than this may be good diet lifestyle to lean into, incorporating more fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and some seafood.
Try it and see the health benefits that you’ll experience.
