Semi-vegetarianism means eating seafood or poultry, or both, but no red meat. People who eat red meat on rare occasion are flexitarians. Real or semi-vegetarians, though, usually resent flexitarian, looking down on this term and calling it cheating.[1]

A pollotarian is a person who eats chicken. They do not eat red meat, seafood or fish.

Pollo-pescetarians eat seafood, shrimp and poultry but no red meat.

People who have semi-vegetarian diets are usually doing so for health reasons, including avoiding heart disease, diabetes and strokes.[2]
