Simon Cowell told Extra that he’s lost 20 pounds since switching to a vegan diet.
He went on to say he’s feeling “much better” since the weight loss. However he admits he still craves pizza which has been “really hard” for the “America’s Got Talent” judge.
The change in his diet came after an incident in October 2017 when Cowell fainted while going down the stairs. He would later discover the accident was the result of low blood pressure.
Cowell then began a vegan diet after a friend who is a doctor recommended that he see an expert. He has since cut out meat, dairy, wheat and sugar.
He also cut out melon when he discovered he was actually allergic to the fruit.
“Within 24 hours I changed my diet and I’ve not looked back since,” he said. “You feel better, you look better.”
