TV’s Simon Cowell can’t believe how good he looks since losing weight.
The 60-year-old music mogul has lost four inches off his waist since overhauling his lifestyle and committing to a diet of white meat, fruit and vegetables.
Simon admitted he looked at himself and thought “wow” after dropping the weight and is still able to drink his favourite alcoholic drink – Corona Premium Light.
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”.
Meanwhile, Simon, who has son Eric, five, 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.”
I used to be 36 inch waist and now I’ve lost four inches.
He explained: “I met this doctor in LA and he told me my diet was appalling and I had to cut out fatty foods and certain drinks.
“I could see the difference. Cutting out sugar made a massive difference. The first few weeks were difficult, but then I actually stopped craving sugar. I had also found a brilliant gluten-free beer, which helps.”
It seems Simon has also been working on his abs in recent months and his pal Sinitta recently revealed she bought the music mogul a TESLA Former toning machine for his 60th birthday.
Sinitta told The Sun: “For his birthday I got him this machine that you exercise with for half an hour every day and it absolutely rips your abs to shreds.”
