A pollotarian diet includes eating chicken, fish, dairy products and eggs, but not eating red meat or meat from any land mammals. The "pollo" prefix in pollotarian literally refers to the word chicken, although pollotarians eat other poultry. Some people transition to a pollotarian diet temporarily before becoming a vegetarian. Others simply want to give up red meat to reduce their risk of heart disease and lower their cholesterol. Some individuals mistakenly believe that a pollotarian diet is a vegetarian diet because they don't consider poultry to be meat, as they do beef. Regardless of this error, eliminating red meat from the diet does have several health advantages.
