Simon Cowell has been on an impressive weight loss journey over the past year, but what did he do and how much weight has he lost?
Simon, 60, has lost just over a stone and a half since he changed his lifestyle and diet, and is looking great for it.
But how did the star drop the weight, was he on a diet, and what did he look like before?
The music mogul is believed to have lost a huge 20lbs since her changed his diet and lifestyle.
In an interview with The Sun, Simon told them: "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."
Simon is believed to have lost weight by cutting out sugar in his diet entirely, as well as cutting down on his meat intake.
Talking about his diet, Simon said that you have to keep "the food sensible", but that it's also has to be interesting and tasty to make it "surprisingly easy".
He explained: "“All I do is avoid just red meat - white meat is fine - and I eat loads of vegetables, salads and drink this great beer.
“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."
He added: "I’m 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. If it’s boring you won’t stick to it.”
This summer, Simon showed off the extent of his weight loss as he was pictured on holiday with his family in Barbados.
Walking along the beach with his son Eric and partner Lauren Silverman, the X factor star looked slender and confident with his new physique.
