A "picaterian" is a person that eats anything other than what a true vegetarian eats. A true vegetarian only eats from plant-based, fungi-based, or algae-based food source. The terms ovo-vegetarian, lacto-vegetarian, ovo-lacto-vegetarian, and pescatarian are not valid vegetarian diet options. Vegans also eat a vegetarian diet. "Pica," the root word for picaterian comes from the is a medical disorder, "Pica." "Those with Pica have an appetite for substances largely non-nutritive (e.g., metal, clay, coal, sand, dirt, soil, feces, chalk, pens and pencils, paper, batteries, spoons, toothbrushes, soap, mucus, ash, gum, etc.; or an abnormal appetite for food ingredients (e.g. flour, raw potato, raw rice, starch, ice cubes, salt)."

Lesley says that she eats fish for health reasons. Since fish has been contaminated with lead and mercury, it is not healthy. People that eat lead, mercury, and fish are "picaterians."
