What is the Pesco Vegetarian diet?

In this diet you basically divide your plate into four sections and fill two sections with non-starchy veggies, another with grains and the other with fish. The veggies and grains will give you Vitamin B, zinc, iron and calcium while the fish will fulfill your need for proteins.

What are the health benefits from this diet?

When a person chooses a Pesco Vegetarian diet or is a Pescetarian, he/she has lower blood pressure and low cholesterol levels, which means they have better heart health and tend to be slimmer compared to those who eat meat. Pescetarians also have lower body mass index so there are less chances of obesity. Hence, this diet is slowly becoming more popular by the day, what with many choosing to go the healthy way.

What are the options?
