Sometimes a switch just flips in your head and everything's different. You're going along, and you think you're you, fixed, but really you aren't who you think you are. One day you're a corpse eater, next day you're not. All kinds of awakenings are possible.
But setting aside spirituality, becoming a teetotaller vegan can really dent your cholesterol. I've had bad borderline high readings all my middle aged life, worsening slowly with age, no good cholesterol, lots of bad, triglycerides marching upward, in spite of lots of physical activity and a "reasonably" healthy diet by modern American standards. ...but this last round...solidly good. Wild.
It's almost like the universe wants me to care about suffering and the environment.
It could also have nothing to do with veganism, just being way more mindful of snacking and eating zero processed "food" or "bars" or "treats" (am I a dog?) or sugar added foods, but it's all part of a general awareness to be slow, be mindful, do what you know is right.
Even if the readings were bad or the same, I'd stick with veganism, because it's like I saw something I can't unsee, but this is a sign to me that something was off on how I was living.
I was definitely headed toward statins...which would've really bummed me out...
Radical change is possible in a single moment of awakening.
