A happy and healthy Simon Cowell showed off his impressive 20-pound weight loss as he posed on the Hollywood red carpet last night ahead of the America’s Got Talent quarterfinals.
The 59-year-old talent show judge had decided to take drastic measures after falling down the stairs in the middle of the night in October 2017.
Doctors warned him to stop binging on fast food such as hamburgers, sausage rolls, and jam tarts. He was also urged to stop living “like a vampire” by staying awake until 8am every day.
After converting to veganism, the music mogul has since lost almost 21 pounds, with his fit new figure taking years off his looks.
In an interview with The Sun’s Dan Wootton earlier this year, he jested, “If I was on a one to ten scale of being handsome, I was an eight and now I’ve gone to an 11.”
Simon shared, “Within 24 hours I changed my diet and I’ve not looked back since. You feel better, you look better.
“I cut out a lot of the stuff I shouldn’t have been eating and that was primarily meat, dairy, wheat, sugar — those were the four main things.”
He shared that he “never went on a diet before” and that “the word diet makes [him] feel miserable.” But after he got “into a pattern,” he “found it quite enjoyable.”
Simon listed some of the benefits that accompanied the weight loss: “It has helped me sleep and I wake up feeling less tired. I noticed a massive difference in how I felt in about a week. I have more energy and focus and it wasn’t difficult.”
Simon had been busy with Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year. He will be back in the show this autumn with the launch of Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions — which will feature well-known alumni such as Susan Boyle, Connie Talbot, and Stavros Flatley.
