No, Simon Cowell has not had more plastic surgery. The X Factor judge’s drastic new look has been credited to a vegan diet

The 59-year-old stunned fans with his very youthful and slim appearance in London last week.

And whilst he may have had a little Botox (it’s addictive, he says), the dad-of-one is believed to have lost 9kg after turning to a vegan diet.

He’s also cut out sugar, bread and gluten.

Simon – who was hospitalised in 2017 due to low blood pressure – told Access Hollywood of his new diet: “You feel better. My memory’s better, so I didn’t find it difficult. I can still drink beer, so I’m happy.”

“It’s way easier than you think. Like, I used to have yogurt in the morning, and I changed to almond-milk yogurt. I have almond milk in my tea.”

Here are more celebs who’ve recently joined the vegan/plant-based movement for health and environmental reasons…

 

Beyoncé & Jay Z

The Bonnie & Clyde hitmakers recently spread the word about the health benefits of vegan living as well as the positive impact it has on our planet.

They even encouraged fans to go vegan too by offering free concert tickets FOR LIFE.

The power couple wrote the forward in the book Greenprint: Plant-Based Diet, Best Body, Better World, with the message, “Once we looked at health as the truth, instead of a diet, it became a mission for us to share that truth and lifestyle with as many people as possible.”

 

Venus Williams

After being diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome, a debilitating and incurable autoimmune disease, the Wimbledon winner adopted a raw vegan diet. Venus told Women’s Health: “Once I started, I fell in love with the concept of fuelling your body in the best way possible [through raw, vegan food].”

“I always tell people that you have to enjoy what you’re eating. If you’re eating a plant based diet, or a mixture of one, make sure you’re eating something you like. Find a restaurant, recipes or join a community – that way you can learn and enjoy your food. If you can’t enjoy your eating, I don’t know how much [fun] life would be!”
