"high amounts of cellulose, which is difficult for our body to break down, that's why eating vegetables can help with your digestive track, a large portion cant be digested at all, so it kind of just runs through you like a drain snake. "
More commonly referred to as "fiber"

The cellulose in vegetables being hard to break down means it is still in a solid form when it reaches the large intestine whereas meat has been broken down and is liquid. The muscles in the large intestine need to push against something solid to push it out so eating vegetables will give you a lower chance of constipation.

i have a couple of vegan friends who claim immense metabolic and digestive benefits from it, and my own personal experience living vegetarian for 7 weeks seems to agree with that.
That said, biology is the only reason i'd ever do it. Anyone who goes vegetarian for moral reasons is an idiot and should be beaten. All life feeds on death

Animals act as conversion factories. They can feed on grass, which humans can't, and convert it into a form of calories we can consume (their flesh)
In addition, animals act as storage facilities. Vegetables and grains left in the field will rot, but nutrients fed to an animal will be stored, and kept for its entire lifespan. This is usually several years, sometimes decades. This was extremely important in the era before refridgeration, and you're naive if you think everywhere has access to a freezer even in this day and age, not to mention the electricity required to run one.
Lastly, animals have other functions too. their skin and horns have industrial uses, unwanted parts of their flesh can be used to feed dogs.

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that is required to make red blood cells and cannot be found in any plants at viable amounts. Naturally, it is only found in viable amounts in animal meats, however science has allowed up to fortify certain foods with it to make sure all people are getting it.
Vegans will die if they don't find a way to supplement that vitamin into their diets.

not true at all do you know anything about human evolution? just say that one can live safely without meat but there are plenty of reasons to eat it

its "more efficient" if you have a 7th grade biology level of knowledge, where they teach that there's this big "food pyramid" that represents the level of "energy" there, and each "level" loses more energy .-.
like yea, plants may be the vast majority of the "energy" or food resources on the planet, but you know why? its infinitely easier to simply exist during daylight than it is to eat a plant. and yeah, there might be more FIELD MICE than owls because you know what? how much of a brain does it take to eat plants as compared to hunting a living animal? Yeah there might be "more food energy" or whatever in plants, but the "food pyramid" isn't how much actual "energy" is gained from eating something, but its more of a depiction of how complex something is and how complex something needs to be to exist at that level.
Every living thing evolves due to necessity, and nothing more. And this rant isn't even about the actual physiological necessity of eating meat, its just a logical break down of WHY we eat meat; we never would have existed on the level we do today if it were not for meat.
