There are vegetarians, and then there are VEGETARIANS. This term, even though black and white in its definition, seems to contain many shades of gray. A true vegetarian is one who does not eat meat of any kind -- that includes chicken, fish and yes, lobster too. (Chicken broth also counts as meat, by the way.) But these days, with meat eating on the decline, many people are calling themselves vegetarians. And some of these newfound vegetarians might not be so vegetarian after all -- we're looking at you "vegetarians" who once in a while sneak a piece of bacon.

On the other side of the spectrum, there are some seriously hardcore vegetarians out there. Ones who are sick at the thought of meat. Ones who tattoo their favorite vegetables on their body. And even ones who sometimes think about going vegan. Where do you fall on the vegetarian scale? Take the quiz and find out just how hardcore you are.
