What has Simon said?

Simon told The Sun’s Bizarre TV column: “It’s something I have been thinking about because everyone’s so interested. I think I would call it, ‘It’s Not That Difficult’.

“I’d give people some of the recipes I have been following. What you eat has to taste nice — otherwise you won’t stick to it.”

Speaking about his decision to get fit, Simon added: “It was the best thing I’ve ever done.”

Earlier this year, Simon revealed he cut out red meat from his diet.

Cutting out red meat

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: “The most dramatic period was the first month where most of the weight comes off and you look at yourself and think ‘wow’. I used to be 36 inch waist and now I’ve lost four inches. I’m really happy now.

“You can drink this light beer but you’ve got to be sensible about quantities. I have loads more energy and feel great.

“All I do is avoid just red meat – white meat is fine – and I eat loads of vegetables, salads and drink this great beer.”

He added that he’s on a diet but “it doesn’t feel like it now because the food I eat is really healthy and I don’t find it tedious”.

Simon, who has son Eric, six, with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, 42, was previously forced to deny his 20lbs weight loss is due to a gastric band.

He told Best magazine: “People have said: ‘Oh, he’s had a gastric band fitted’ – but I haven’t. If I had, I would admit to it. This diet is all about what you put into your body.”
