Has the something happened to you once? more than once? regularly? Complicated to answer. It was an on-going process while it lasted, but didn't last forever. It is not happening at the present time.
Is it something negative? positive? Positive.

I said "It is not happening at the present time," but of course it is affecting me, as expressed in the puzzle statement. Have I confused you enough?

Is "what you are today" something negative? positive?

Did the cure have any effect on you, other than healing your condition? If so, was your mood affected? your body? Did you lose weight?

Is "what you are today" something negative? positive? DOYD. I think it's positive; others might not.

Did the cure have any effect on you, other than healing your condition? Mainly, that was it.If so, was your mood affected?Some might say it affected my mood or disposition. your body? Did you lose weight? No, no - I gained weight.

I suspect that there is a false or inaccurate assumption being made. Suggestion: consider the time-frame.

Did you finish it less than a week ago? less than a months? less than half a year ago? less than a year ago? longer ago than that? Quite a bit longer ago than that.

Were you on it for less than one months? less than three? less than six? less than a year? more than that? About a year or a little bit more.
Long shot in the dark: Did you have to quit smoking? Give up alcohol? NO. At the time, I neither smoked nor drank alcohol, so couldn't give them up. Still don't smoke.
FA still alive and well.

Did the diet affect your current preferences for food? Did it make you like/hate certain types of food/dishes/ingredients?

Did it make you picky about food? Or the opposite,were you happy to be off the diet and to be able to eat everything you want? And now you eat everything?

Were you a child back then? YES - the breakthrough we have been waiting for!

Did the diet affect your current preferences for food? Did it make you like/hate certain types of food/dishes/ingredients? yope or n.a. to all
Did it make you picky about food?no Or the opposite,were you happy to be off the diet and to be able to eat everything you want? And now you eat everything? yope or n.r.

I was sort of half-joking when I said this 'explains a lot about me today.' Explore _what_ it explains.
And maybe the type of food, too.

************SPOILER****************
When I was a newborn, my mother couldn't nurse me, and I was allergic to cow milk & formula. So my family got a nanny goat and, this being in the middle of a Nebraska blizzard, put her in the basement.
The story goes that when I cried, the nanny thought I was her kid, and climbed the steps to try to get to me. "My b-a-a-a-by!"
I thrived so well that, when my folks moved to a farm in a warmer part of the country, they went into dairy goat raising in a commercial way. So I was raised on goat milk, which made me what I am today - stubborn and onery!

Addendum: I told this to an acquaintance, and it turns out that she had the same experience, minus the blizzard - and her family was in the goat-ranch business. She said that when she heard the Parable of the sheep & goats (Matt. 25) in church, she was puzzled as to why Christ would prefer dirty, stupid sheep over intelligent, lovable goats!
