I like crunchy peanut butter. I'm not a "CrunchyPeanutButterian" as if that somehow makes it something more then just an opinion about what food I want to eat.
But"CrunchyPeanutButterian" would be an accurate title if crunchy peanut butter was all you ate. "Vegetarian," "ovo-vegetarian" etc. describe the restrictions that someone sets on what he will eat, not just his favorite foods.
