What is a Plant-Based Diet anyway?

There’s a lot of confusion about the meaning of “plant based diet”. I try to clear it up by talking about what plant-based does not mean. At least that’s a start.

By the way, it does not mean vegan or vegetarian, although those are variations on plant-based. Unfortunately a recently published study incorrectly defined plant-based as vegan/vegetarian, which didn’t help their conclusions IMHO.
