Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell has revealed the results of his weight loss of 20 pounds after adjusting to a vegan lifestyle.

Cowell showed his drastically thinner figure as he posed for photos on the red carpet in front of the Hollywood Dolby Theater on Tuesday.

Earlier this year, the talent judge announced that he had been trying to lose weight by becoming a vegan after hospitalizing in 2017 from low blood pressure health issues.

In June, he told Extra TV: "I went to this very well-known man and he said to me after doing some blood tests: You can not get red meat, dairy, sugar, bread and have no gluten. ""

He also told The Sun at the time, "A friend of mine, who is a doctor, recommended talking to an expert, and I did it on a whim." Within 24 hours, I changed my diet and have not looked back since You feel better, you look better.

"I cut out a lot of things that I should not have actually eaten, and these were mostly meat, dairy, wheat, sugar – those were the four most important things."

"It was a lot easier than you might think, as if I had drunk yogurt in the morning and changed it to almond milk yoghurt, I have almond milk in my tea."

Cowell added that he can only eat certain fruits, some of which contain more sugar than a can of cola.

As he adapted to his new lifestyle, he added, "Once you found a pattern, I found it very pleasant, it helped me sleep, and I wake up with less fatigue." I noticed a massive difference in how I felt in about one week.

"I have more energy and concentration and it has not been difficult, I do not like using the word diet because that's why I have never dieted – the word diet makes me miserable."
