More than 55,000 Swedish women were studied and the researchers found vegetarians and vegans tend to weigh less and were leaner than those who ate animal foods. The study defined vegetarians as those who ate no meat, fish or eggs except for dairy products (also called lacto-vegetarians) and those who sometimes ate fish or eggs (semi-vegetarians). Vegans ate no animal products including dairy.
