Followers are shocked by Simon Cowell’s new look, however he is been open about his weight reduction journey for some time
After decades in the entertainment industry, Simon Cowell remains one of the most prominent media personalities. The British producer has been widely known around the world since joining American Idol in the early 2000s and developing his (fake) ‘rude judge’ persona. While much of the public continues to see him on TV, others have taken to social media lately to share their thoughts on something unrelated to his work. Some fans appear to have been shocked by Cowell’s appearance, and some have made some less than positive comments while weighing in. However, this ties into his weight loss journey, which he has previously been open about.
Commenters took to Twitter to share thoughts on Simon Cowell’s physical appearance, and they seem to use a variety of ways to illustrate the differences they find. A user posted two pictures, one showing the 63-year-old TV host as he looks today and another snap believed to have been taken years ago

Unfortunately, some of the posts are also a bit snarky in how they refer to the America’s Got Talent alum. Another commenter complained about his performance by making a joke at his expense:

There are many other people on social media sharing their thoughts on the man’s looks. Despite this, there are some who know that the music producer has made changes when it comes to his health. And there is quite a lot of information on this topic.
Simon Cowell changed his diet and is becoming more physically active
Simon Cowell has done some serious work to ensure he stays in good shape. He’s lost over 60 pounds in the past few years, as noted by Fabbon. Cowell reportedly achieved this by eliminating a number of things from his diet. The above website mentions that he no longer consumes dairy, sugar, red meat or gluten. Since then, salads, fruit and vegetables have been among his favorite dishes. When discussing the key to improving one’s eating habits, Cowell said:
When you’re on a diet, you need to keep the food reasonable, but it needs to be interesting and tasty, then the diet is surprisingly easy.
Simon Cowell tends to be quite vicarious when it comes to his physical activities, although that can sometimes come with its pitfalls. Cowell broke his back in 2020, notably due to an electric bike accident. He quickly underwent five-hour surgery and eventually recovered, despite injuring himself in another e-bike snafu earlier this year. Despite the setbacks, the initial situation led to Cowell taking up walking as part of his recovery. The former X Factor producer still does so today, and also occasionally goes on a bike ride, possibly to his young son’s chagrin.
So fans should keep Simon Cowell’s health journey in mind before considering commenting on his looks. Finally, most of us would probably agree that it is best not to engage in body shaming of any kind.
