Simon Cowell makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Tuesday (September 17)!
The 59-year-old America’s Got Talent judge opens up about changing his diet after a health scare, and reveals he gave up everything he loves except alcohol and smoking.
“I went to see this doctor in London. We did some tests. And then a month later he said, ‘You have the worst diet I’ve ever met from any patient,’” Simon recalls to DeGeneres. “So I went, ‘Okay, out of the smoking, the drinking, and diet, what do I have to drop?’ And he said, ‘The diet.’ So I said, ‘I’m in!’”
Simon also reveals that the new diet restricts him from eating “pretty much all the things I loved,” adding that his main inspiration is his son Eric with girlfriend Lauren Silverman. “It was easier than I thought, and part of the reason I did it was because of Eric. I realized if I didn’t sort myself out physically, I wouldn’t be able to catch up with him. Because the minute he gets up to the minute he goes to sleep … their energy, you forget, at 5-years-old, is phenomenal.”
Simon‘s health journey began back in 2017, when he suffered a health scare after falling down a flight of stairs in his home.
