Television personality and talent show judge Simon Cowell has ditched his plant-based diet to gain weight and ‘rebuild his strength’ after breaking his back in a bike accident.

Following the injury in August, Cowell reportedly began eating meat again after moving towards a more vegan lifestyle back in 2019.

A close friend of the star, Sinnita, told The Sun that Cowell had been doing well in his recovery and appears to be in good health following a recent phone call.

She stated that: “He sounded so much better. He wasn’t dazed, sedated or weak. He was really bright, happy, and clear.”

“He’s gained a bit of weight and is looking healthier. He said he had to start eating protein, calcium and break his vegan diet to rebuild his strength.”

She went on to comment that Cowell was “too thin and exhausted” before his accident and that “He’s found his sweet spot.” with his lifestyle now.
