This all started back in the October of 2017 when Simon had a little accident. Simon was going to meet one of his friends when he slipped down the stairs of his Malibu house and suffered some injuries. Right after this accident, Cowell was rushed to the doctor.

The good thing was that he didn’t suffer any major injuries and was going to recover fast enough. However, there was bad news as well. The doctors told Cowell that he fell because of his low blood pressure and that he had to take care of his health.

The doctors advised Cowell to get in charge of his health and lose some weight. At that time, he had the habit of binge eating. Simon would sit in front of the TV and would eat for a whole hour. Cowell was addicted to hamburgers, sausage rolls, and his favorite, jam tarts.

He gave up every kind of meat consumption except fish. However, after a month, Simon gave up eating fish as well. In one of his interviews, Simon said, “If you’re on a diet you have to keep the food sensible, but it’s got to be interesting and tasty, then the diet’s surprisingly easy“.

The great news is that Simon tried his hand at cooking as well. And guess what? He succeeded in it. Simon’s cooking proved to be a very good experience and he even decided to write a vegan cookbook. Along with meat, Cowell abandoned sugar consumption as well.

In practicing this, he even avoided eating fruits that had a high amount of sugar. However, with the passing of time, as his health started improving, Simon slowly and cautiously, transformed to a normal diet. He now eats meat but not like before.
