As described in the various answers here, there are words out there for people who eat poultry and/or fish while not meat. Is there a word for a person who eats meat, fish, poultry, and plants but not their byproducts (dairy and eggs)?

  • I would think there might be a word for people who don't eat processed meats etc. – Xanne May 3 '17 at 19:47
  • If an egg is a byproduct from a chicken, isn't a cow (nee calf) a byproduct from another cow? – Drew May 3 '17 at 20:09
  • @Drew Perhaps. Maybe byproduct isn't the best word to use, though I suppose this is the one site that should be concerned about semantics. – DonielF May 3 '17 at 20:12
  • Unless you can produce evidence that there are such people, there is no reason to expect there to be a word for them. – Colin Fine May 3 '17 at 23:57
