Flexitarian Diet

If eliminating meat from your diet is too extreme, the flexitarian diet may be more your style. Basically, it’s a vegetarian diet that allows you to cheat and eat meat once in awhile. Eat meat only on the weekends or make pacts to skip meat a few times a week with traditions like “Meatless Mondays.”
