From The Fast Guide For Vegetarians & Vegans:
The term semi-vegetarian is usually used to describe someone who is a vegetarian who consumes dairy products, eggs, chicken, and fish, but does not consume other animal flesh.
Ovo-lacto vegetarians are vegetarians who do not consume meat, poultry, fish, and seafood, but do consume eggs and milk. This is the largest group of vegetarians.
Ovo-vegetarian is a term used to describe someone who would be a vegan if they did not consume eggs.
Lacto-vegetarian is a term used to describe someone who would be a vegan if they did not consume milk.
Vegan is the strictest sub-category of vegetarians. Vegans do not consume any animal products or by-products. Some go as far as not even consuming honey and yeast. Others do not wear any clothing made from animal products.
Important: Take some time to figure out for yourself, what group you will
belong to when you become a vegetarian. You will want to consider both dietary
and ethical reasons for choosing this lifestyle.
As far as my understanding of soya bean milk goes (someone correct me if I am wrong), it does not contain animal stuff inside. So I will substitute milk with soya bean milk. I know I will need some protein, therefore I will stick with eggs. So that makes me a Lacto-Vegetarian! I do know I will have a surmountable amount of meat cravings being quite heavy on that, but several sites on the net assured me that once I started I will find the taste of meat to be under control to a point within a few months, meat would not really matter to me. I may even find it disgusting! The results will be in a few months.
In addition to that, I decided to completely cut off my carbohydrates. I really do find myself unable to control my weight once I eat rice. And there is something about rice that makes me sleepy. So I believe good things would come out of this diet. In the meantime, I am going to eat my last rice and meat meal for supper. And I realized one thing too, a rice and meet meal would cost approximately RM 5.50 to RM 7.50. But a nice fulfilling spinach egg soup would only cost RM 4.00. So here I go on my humble veggie journey. Will let you all know the progress of this veggie diet incrementally. So here I go!
