im just curious, why do some vegetarians/vegans eat these man made Tofu meats when alot of them are very against meat and stating were not ment to eat meat? Im just really curious. Sorry if this question has been asked alot.

Is it to curve an intense craving for meat? I being a meat eater get really strong cravings for meat if I go a day or more with none in my diet. (Especially red meat)

Thank you for any answers :)
