I am a RN and originally went vegan for the animals/ethical reasons. The more I learned about it, I became more focused on doing it for the health benefits. I have been reading so many great books on the subject (my new one I am reading now is Fiber Fueled). So many great reasons to go plant-based. Maybe search on facebook for groups under "Plant-based" and you might find others of like mind? I am member in a few groups such as this. Also, there are many podcasts to listen to: the Exam Room Podcast and the Plant Strong podcasts are 2 that are top of mind. Hope this helps.
Hey! I just saw that you had also posted that you have adopted more of a WFPB diet due to pre-diabetes. Have you read the book Mastering Diabetes by Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro? It is great and I highly recommend it!
Changing your diet and becoming a vegetarian or vegan takes a responsible approach to the process itself.
I personally took several quality courses on the Core Spirit website several years ago: Core Spirit
It's a huge community and a global leader in the world of Wellness, Health, Spirituality & Technologies. There are quite a lot of high quality articles on veganism and vegeterianism so you can easily educate yourself. The point is also that Core Spirit services are provided by good specialists from 80+ countries and you can be sure that all your peculiarities will be taken into consideration and all texts are written by professionals. I recommend you just to take a look!
