I guess it depends on what you want to eat or not eat,
and what you consider to be an animal, if you decide not to eat animals.

When, as a teen, I decided I couldn't eat animals, it never occurred to me that chicken and fish aren't animals.  Oddly enough, when people ask if I'm vegetarian, and I reply that I don't eat animals, they will *still* ask if I eat chicken or fish.  

Then I have to repeat and stress that I don't eat animals, ANY animals, they'll ask "well ... what do you eat then?" to which I reply "EVerything else" !!!

Animals products, though ... that's a whole 'nuther issue ...
